River Walk in Downtown Estes Park

River Walk view

Downtown Estes Park along Elkhorn Avenue at first glance is full of tourist shops, galleries and restaurants.  Yet right out the backdoor of the shops is a surprise!  Estes Park's Riverwalk -  a wonderful park that meanders along the riverbanks all the way through town.

Filled with intimate spots, shade, sculpture - it's an inviting place to explore.  Enjoy outdoor dining & coffee on the patio, places for kids to dip a finger in the cold mountain water, a playground, benches to sit and people watch, and easy strolling through the Village.
