Aurora Reservoir is a 31,650-acre City of Aurora park with over 800 surface acres of water.  Colorado isn’t really known for it’s beaches.  Aurora Reservoir has a beach!  You can put your feet in the sand, build a sandcastle, and enjoy natures beauty.

This fun park is especially popular in the summer since there are covered areas with built-in barbecues, a playground, and a nature center.

There are boat ramps for non-motorized or electric only watercraft, kayaks, paddleboards, and canoes.  Fishers will enjoy the fishing dock and many shaded trees around the reservoir.
