The town has made a strong commitment to providing recreational opportunities for its residents, and the result is a combination of facilities that is truly amazing for such a small community. The beautiful centrally-located park has playing fields for team sports, a swimming pool, tennis and volleyball courts, a children’s playground, a kids’ fishing pond, a basketball court, a skateboard ramp, and an ice skating rink. A new covered ice rink and pavilion opened in 2004.
The Town Park has an extensive camping area for nightly stays. In addition, the stage used for the summer festivals and performances is located here. The stage is renowned as a first-class facility by the musicians, actors, technicians, producers and directors who come here to present their performances and productions.
With the park and its facilities, with trailheads right in town leading to the extensive trail system, and with the wonderful 3-mile paved bike trail running out to Society Turn, Telluride provides great in-town recreation to complement the excellent recreation available in the nearby mountains.
As your Telluride real estate broker, I want to help you learn all about Telluride and area recreation. I love to teach and will take the time to explain as much about Telluride and the surrounding areas as you wish to know. The more you know about the area, the easier you’ll find the process of determining your purchasing needs.
The recreation and entertainment available in Telluride is simply outstanding. Most likely, you’re already convinced that the area boasts some of the most beautiful sights in the world. Likewise, you probably agree that the skiing here is simply superb. Perhaps best of all, there’s practically no wait for the ski lifts! However, there is so much more recreation to Telluride than skiing and snowboarding, such as, golfing, camping, hiking, mountain biking, mountain climbing, fishing, snow shoeing, horseback riding, 4×4, ice climbing and more. In addition, there are weekly concerts and festivals throughout the summer.
Telluride is almost as well known for its festivals as its skiing. The community is literally packed with good music, art, and delicious food festivals on the weekends from May to December. There’s even a wine festival in June that serves to bring a little joy to nearly every palette. From the Telluride Mountain Film Festival and the Bluegrass Festival to the Telluride Jazz Festival and Blues and Brews Festival, there’s entertainment enough to make the spring and summer just as memorable as ski season.
