Barr Lake Nature Center

13401 Picadilly Road
Brighton, CO 80603


‹ ‹ ‹At the Barr Lake Nature Center, visitors can see displays about the park’s wildlife and have their questions answered by a naturalist. The Nature Center is located near the south parking lot. Center hours vary; call (303) 659-6005 for hours and information about upcoming programs or to arrange a program for your group.

Funds from Colorado Parks and Wildlife and the U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service were used to construct the Nature Center, as well as many of the park's boardwalks. The expansion and renovation of the Nature Center was possible through a $45,000 grant form Adams County.
