The river park is situated under the peaks of Steamboat Mountain. It is a campground, day use area and recreation destination for activities like fishing, hiking, camping, picnicking, horseback riding and sightseeing.
Irrigation Lake Park is a full serviced recreation destination complete with picnic tables (some in the shade, some not), fire pits, sitting benches, change rooms and outhouses. The lake enjoys a small sandy beach and a large grassy area. Many arrive at the lake to swim and picnic.
The highlight of the route are the viewing benches, the aspen forest and a viewing platform situated along the trail for all to use. During the summer and early fall months the wetlands are visited by many ducks.
