Welcome to Parks & Recreation!


 Effective immediately, the City of Pueblo has restricted the use of portions of the Arkansas River that are located on or adjacent to City recreational trails, parks or facilities from Pueblo Boulevard to CO HWY 227 until further notice.

Activities NOT permitted include: recreational swimming (with or without life vests); use of Single-Chambered Air-Inflated Devises (inner tubes, inflatable mattresses). Whitewater canoes, kayaks, and multi-chambered inflatable rafts are currently not subject to these restrictions.

This closure is due to higher than normal flows in the Arkansas River and concerns for public safety. The City will continue to monitor the flows and make further adjustments as necessary.

Fountain River Trail Closure
Due to the recent torrential rains and the extremely high water levels of the Fountain Creek, areas of the trails that run along the creek have been washed out and have been covered with three to four inches of mud. The trail will be closed until further notice from the trail head on East Highway 50 Bypass to Runyon Lake.
