Walk Description: Saturday, December 9, marks the grand opening of the brand-new Creekside Play Area at the Boulder Public Library – part of Boulder’s beautifully redesigned Civic Area Park. We’ll meet up at the south entrance to the Library following the playground opening festivities and take a tour through the Civic Area on our way to the free community skate at the WinterSkate rink next to the Dushanbe Teahouse. The FREE community skate is part of the city’s Snow Much Fun celebration (see this site for details). This short walk is appropriate for all ages. Bring the whole family for an afternoon of fun in the heart of Boulder!
Schedule and Planning: Our walk starts at the south entrance to the Library, just south of the new play area. We will start walking by 1:35 and arrive at the WinterSkate rink no later than 2:15.
