Promontory Park offers passive recreation, breath taking views of Independence Pass and surrounding peaks, and overlooks where you can hear the roar of the Roaring Fork River. It is located at the upper terminus of the Burlingame Connector Trail and along the Burlingame Loop Trail. The green stormwater system features bridges over a pond which contains salamander, trout, as well as many insects and bird species. Native and adapted plant communities can be found throughout the park. A shallow sand bench in the pond is an attraction for children while the terraces and overlooks make the park a gathering place for many visitors.
