Referring to your original question, "should we push for a park?", not at the expense of boater river access. I agree that the land needs to be secured. A play park upriver could provide great recreation for a small group of users, mostly locals. Tourists would likely go to Glenwood. Fishing and floating the Gold Medal waters of the Roaring Fork certainly brings tourist dollars.

River parks also have peak times and become unpopular at low flows. That could coincide nicely with fishing clear rivers. I don't believe the DOW is concerned about securing access for those who simply float.

The only "no fishing" sign I have seen at the Glenwood wave is a handwritten in sharpy statement on another sign which I would say was tagged there by some kid.

I have however seen many a drift and raft set up fishing the eddys there and saw a guide from Taylor Creek catch a nice fish to show his client how it is done. Even had fish jump within paddle length of my yak while waiting in the eddy. So it would seem to me that any new feature would provide habitat.

Either way though that access point needs to be purchased by the DOW soon and we can worry about the details of a park and parking later.

River access higher priority for Carbondale than kayak park |

Look like they're going to try to make it work by getting the propert first

Who's your monkey?
