Ice on ponds and lakes
You can help to keep you and your pets safe by keeping them off OSMP's icy lakes. Many times, pets that fall into icy waters will be able to get out or self-rescue without assistance.
If it happens to you while visiting OSMP and your pet is unable to get out of the water, stay off the ice! Call 911 and Boulder Fire-Rescue will respond and rescue your pet!
Visit the Fishing on OSMP page for more information about fishing opportunities and regulations.
Equestrians are allowed throughout the length of the East Boulder Trail. Off-trail riding is not allowed in the Lower Boulder Creek Habitat Conservation Area (HCA), and is discouraged in other areas to protect rare plants and wildlife habitat. Learn more about riding your horse on OSMP.
There is a variety of waterfowl and fish at Teller Lake. Grass carp were introduced into the lake to control the growth of pond vegetation. State fishing regulations apply. All smallmouth and largemouth bass in possession must be 15 inches in length or longer. Raptors, coyote, fox and deer may also be observed in this area.
