If it’s a park, river trail, open space, or a river float, Durango has the outdoor playground for you! Check out our parks, open space, and trails for the activity that suits your needs. 

Please help us maintain the quality of our parks, trails, and open space. Please pick up and properly dispose of your pet’s waste. Remember, all dogs must be on a leash on all city lands and trails, except the off-leash area.

Cemetery Tree Spraying

There are several Juniper trees in the Cemetery so the treatments will take several days. There will be cones and signs reminding people of the treatments when they enter the Cemetery.
