Dickens Farm Nature Area is an interactive nature area where the St. Vrain Creek runs right through. Located on a 52-acre site between Main and Martin Streets along the St. Vrain Creek, it is bordered by Boston Avenue to the north and is a trailhead for the St. Vrain Greenway trail system.

The jewel of this nature area is a float course covering approximately 1/2-mile that is open to tubes, kayak, paddleboards, and small, non-motorized boats. Learn more about recreational uses of the St. Vrain Creek >
