Morrison Park is technically a part of Red Rocks Park. The Civilian Conservation Corps Camp (Camp SP-13) located in the park is open to the public by appointment only–but well worth that appointment. The Camp is one of the last fully intact CCC Camps in the United States. Morrison Park has a first come first served picnic area which is also available by reservation for larger groups. Surrounded by cottonwoods and other trees, the open picnic area extends eastward into the adjacent Morrison Town Park where the Bear Creek Trail begins.
Bear Creek Canyon. A nearby conservation area is Bear Creek Canyon, which the City and County of Denver acquired in 1928. Bear Creek Canyon is a 400 foot wide strip that is 4 miles long and stretches from Morrison toward Idledale along Bear Creek and CO 74.
