Evert Pierson Kids' Fishing Pond

Evert Pierson Kids' Fishing Pond

Fishing Pond Information

Originally an old University of Colorado gravel pit, this area was redeveloped into a children's fishing pond in 1949 by the Boulder Fish and Game Club. The pond is managed by the City of Boulder's Parks and Recreation Department although its fish are stocked and maintained by the Boulder Fish and Game Club, who volunteer over 1000 hours every year to attend to the pond and surrounding area upkeep. They stock approximately three thousand fish each year from Memorial Day to Labor Day.
