Boulder’s Open Space and Mountain Parks protects areas of unique scenic beauty. We help preserve areas where wildlife and plant species can thrive in their native habitats. And we help the community connect with iconic landscapes and natural areas.

Located where Colorado’s Great Plains meet the Rocky Mountains, there truly is no other place in the nation that you will find the biodiversity and recreational opportunities that exist within Open Space and Mountain Parks' 45,000 acres of public land. With a 155-mile trail system and an estimated 700 species of plants, 61 species of mammals and 100+ species of birds on the land, you’re bound to see something amazing here.
