Chautauqua Park: A Historical Landmark
A year-round destination for residents and visitors alike, Chautauqua Park is 26-acre park, complete with a children's playground and trails that are ideal for biking, hiking, and horseback riding. During the winter months, snowshoeing and sledding are popular activities in the park. In addition to trails, many flock to the Chautauqua Park Historic District for its concerts, film festivals, lectures, and classes. Also held here is the annual Colorado Music Festival, and the 100 year-old Chautauqua Dining Hall.
What makes Chautauqua Park so special is the fact that is one of only three surviving Chautauquas in the nation. The Chautauqua movement began in the late 1800s, and was essentially a cultural and educational symposium designed to educate adults that wouldn't typically have access to higher education. It was a means for self-improvement, as well as a way for people to share ideas and socialize.
The Chautauqua movement diminished in the 1930s, though there are people working hard today to revive it once again. To learn more about the Colorado's Chautauqua Park, visit Chautauqua.com.
