Tantra Park is a neighborhood park near Summit Middle School. It has a paved, multi-use path, playground and picnic shelter.
- 4-post slackline park (Bring your own slackline)
- Picnic shelter
- Picnic tables
- Sports field
- Bike racks
The four-pole slackline course in the original plan was not ultimately selected as an alternate, due to budget constraints. The department agreed to match funding if the community can raise half the cost of the slackline course. Crowdfunding efforts initiated by the slackline community leaders in partnership with the City of Boulder’s Resilient Together team met the goal and we are happy to say that a 4-pole slackline course has been installed just north of the playground near the end of Brookfield Drive.
