Aspen has over 30 world-class parks, from modest ones with benches and playgrounds to more than 1,300-acre ones with wide-open spaces, trails, water streams and breathtaking mountain views. These are fantastic venues for picnics, festivals, weddings, and other outdoor events.

The Rio Grande Park

Aspen’s largest public park, the Rio Grande Park, runs along the river and includes a 2.1-mile trail, as well as an appealing skate park, a big athletic field, outdoor basketball courts and even an art museum.

Many major special events take place in it throughout the year, including the famous Aspen Food and Wine Classic. It is not available for rent, but its extraordinary views and pedestrian walking mall make it a great attraction.
