Salida has great parks, anyway, but the one by the river, downtown, is a nice place to eat, hang out, or use as a central location to park around and explore the downtown area on foot, and watch the river runners, kayakers, etc, go by.

Very nice area! My kids loved the playground, rock wall and just exploring the river, spotted several trout! Such a great place for kids while in town!

Took a walk here after dinner and it was the perfect capper to a great evening in downtown Salida. It's a great spot anytime though and shouldn't be missed! Check out the folks surfing "the wave" while you're there...really fun.

This is a very nice public space alongside the Arkansas River with access to trails going up into the mountains on the far side of the river. It's easily accessed from downtown although parking can be difficult during high season.

This is a nice park by the river - they just opened a new wave feature on the river and people were using short surfboards on it . The park has a very nice playground for kids and is just a nice place to walk around.

We enjoyed several afternoon and evening walks in downtown Salida, Colorado. There was much going on at the river, where people were sunning/swimming/rafting/ or just floating down the river. One guy found a great-handing chair to sit and read over the water!

Relaxing at the park. Watching the floaters on the river. Walking along the riverbank. These were some of our favorite things.

Lots of people enjoying the water. Kayaks, sups, rafts, or just floating down the river. We spent the afternoon in the sun enjoying the water.

We attended Art Walk here and our granddaughters played in the playground. The older one (a strong swimmer) has a blast at the rapids on the river. The park is awesome!
