How to Enjoy Fall River in Estes Park

09/29/2022 | by Lyles Armour | Local Area

Fall River is a body of water that begins in Rocky Mountain National Park and flows down into the small quaint town of Estes Park. It stretches out 17 miles through the town with areas of babbling brooks and is surrounded by beautiful nature. As it flows further into Estes Park, it develops into a confluence with the Big Thompson River. From visiting the Riverwalk to spending the night right by it, get ready to take advantage of all that Fall River in Estes Park has to offer!

Estes Park Riverwalk

The Estes Park Riverwalk is nestled right in the heart of the downtown area. There, you’ll have great access to shopping, dining, and beautiful views of the river. You’re only a few feet away from the flowing waters while you browse the boutiques and art galleries! Stop in at one of the many restaurants along the riverwalk and enjoy a bite with a great view too.

 George Hix Memorial Riverside Plaza

Also located on the riverwalk, this area is a serene spot to soak up the beauty of the river. The plaza is surrounded by grand bronze statues and water features. Take a seat on one of the many benches surrounded by aspens and pine trees by the river. There’s also a unique sensory garden dedicated to stimulating the senses with its array of plants and instruments.

 Veterans Monument Park

When checking out the Estes Park Visitor Center, make sure to stop at the Veterans Monument Park right by it. Beautiful rock formations serve as honors to all branches of the Armed Services. It’s right by Fall River and provides benches to soak up the serenity while paying tribute to all who served.

 Performance Park

Enjoy a day of live music, picnicking, and even rock climbing at Performance Park. Fall River flows right beside the park with beautiful views of the river surrounded by lush greenery near the amphitheater.
