On the 23rd of December, Barr Lake State Park was teeming with activity — Eagles, Red-tailed Hawks, Geese and Pintail Ducks, Song Sparrows, Red Squirrels, and a beautiful approaching sunset. The holiday decorations were still in sight at the Nature Center. It was a perfect afternoon at the park! Don’t let the cold temperatures keep you from enjoying the wonders of Barr Lake!
Each year we decorate Barr Lake State Park with beautiful lights. This year was especially wonderful! The lights were amazing! Adults and kids alike had a great time! Friends of Barr Lake is so lucky to be able to help make this evening a success year after year! And Santa was VERY busy!
Each year during the Winter Wonders Holiday Trail at Barr Lake State Park, Friends of Barr Lake holds a Chili Cookoff Contest. It’s a great time to enjoy the beautiful nighttime wonders of the park and have your best chili recipe judged by our visitors. Join us!
