Sawhill Ponds is another beautiful park in the plains in Boulder. For some Gunbarrel residents the park is in walking distance and provides beautiful landscape views, ponds for fishing, and wide hiking trails. The City of Boulder manages the park, which means Green tags for dogs are applicable here. The trails connect to Walden Ponds’ trails, which is right next door.
