A beautiful 60-acre park donated to the city of Ridgway, Colorado, Dennis Weaver Memorial Park stands as a testament to the environmentalism that actor and humanitarian Dennis Weaver embodied in his lifetime.
Medicine Wheel: A stunning eagle sculpture stands at the center of a large Medicine Wheel was created for visitors to meditate and reflect. The area surrounding the eagle and Medicine Wheel is full of cairns, or stacked rocks, left in honor or remembrance of loved ones, or by curious visitors who wish to leave their mark on the land.
This place makes for a nice setting for visiting artists of the Paint in the Park event or spiritual individuals who visit for the Summer Solstice event.
Picnic Area: A lush, grassy knoll by the waters of Uncompahgre River make for an idyllic spot to unwind, enjoy a picnic lunch, and look for wildlife among the river bank.
River Recreation: The Dennis Weaver Memorial Park is bordered by the Uncompahgre River, which provides an excellent opportunity to splash around to cool off in the summer, cast your line for channel catfish, or even bring a raft or kayak and enjoy the spring snowmelt.
There’s something for everyone at Dennis Weaver Memorial Park, from boating and biking to partaking in a Paint in the Park event. Enjoy a reflective stop at the medicine wheel or a picnic on a warm, sunny day.
