Photography & Plein-aire Art

Photographers and Artists will not be able to resist the scenic vistas. The terrain, the views, and the subject matter offer endless opportunities. Whatever you’ve got or brought — cell phone, tablet, SLR with a tripod, digital point and shoot, paintbrush or pencil — the urge to capture it all is irresistible.

Artists bring your paints and easels.

Photographers bring your tripods and extra flash cards or media storage, and make sure you have plenty of room in your mobile photo library.

The Park inspires creativity of all kinds. We’ve heard music being composed, listened to poetry recited, and watched writers struggle to put on paper what they see with their eyes.

The Park is truly a magical place.

Directions to the Park: approximately 1.5 miles north of Ridgway, turn west at RiverSage Drive. Follow the road down and cross the bridge. Park in the lot on the right. R.V. turn-around available. The entrance to the park is marked by a sign “Dennis Weaver Memorial Park,” but you will see the Eagle as you cross the bridge.
