Boulder Play Park

It's been a while, I seem to remember it got good at about 200-250 but I'm not sure.

Is it worth an after work play at 190?

I guess it depends on what you mean by good. If you're into sticky ledge holes, then it's good. The Boulder play park ain't much for modern playboats, even for someone with low play requirements like myself. But yes, 190 is plenty for the pools to be deep and holes to be retentive if that's what you're going for. The park is at least good for some boof or roll practice.

I was just looking do some stern squirts and enders. Just want to make sure I won’t be smacking the bottom.

190 is fun There is plenty to squirt on at those flows. Sticky ledge holes do persist in the park itself but further down there are 2 or 3 really nice wave/hole features.

Boulder Creek

Class III boating and Class V cleavage (student tubers everywhere). About the third hole down gets a nice stack at around 200+. You can spin all day on it.

IMO the best playspots are the Justice center and backyard holes about 1/2 mile below the park,had a blast at 275 they were in,better at 350/500 ish.Widowmaker used to be fun for huge enders in a long boat[in my case a ducky] while my much better boater friend got windowshaded in his playboat/swam,but alas they changed it.At real high[800+] flows there is a good one 100 yds. above the CU greenhouse,past 36,but has a tree limb hanging diagonally a little too close to the hole.

What is up with BC ,will Barker ever spill?
