Shanahan Ridge Park

Shanahan Ridge Park

Nature Play Opportunities

This small, secluded playground provides breathtaking views of the Flatirons and one of the best playgrounds in Boulder’s urban parks, complete with a “human” sundial and climbing structures that mirror the varying altitudes of Boulder. Children can play freely in the open turf and native grasses and crawl through tunnels and over rocks. This is the perfect place to bring your little one who loves to explore the highs and lows of everything!
