The Dennis Weaver® Memorial Park is a magical place of reflection and relaxation dedicated to the memory and vision of actor/environmentalist   Dennis Weaver  .
This 60-acre public park is a permanent wildlife preserve along the lush Uncompahgre River corridor and is at the entrance to Dennis Weaver's eco-friendly    RiverSage  Subdivision surrounded by 130 acres of open green space including the park. Within the park are miles of winding hiking and biking trails with spectacular mountain and river vistas.

Artists, bring your easels.
Everyone, bring a camera!

The adjacent maintained walk along the river is open all year and is approximately two miles round-trip from the Eagle to the Railroad Bridge in town and back. Restrooms, benches and covered picnic tables are available at the "river bend" section of the walkway.

The Dennis Weaver® Memorial Park has a lovely picnic area along the river. The park can be used for special events. Please check Park Activities and Events for availability or to book an event. Special tours may be arranged with Mrs. Dennis Weaver. Please contact us for more information.
