Confluence Park

This 265-acre park is named for the confluence of the Gunnison and Uncompahgre rivers. Extensive walking trails lead through the riparian forest, where you might find Bewick’s Wrens, Black-headed Grosbeaks, Western Screech-Owls, and Gambel’s Quail. The lake is also quite productive, and could attract just about any type of waterbird. Great-tailed Grackles seem to be a permanent fixture in the parking area. Mammals include muskrats and beavers.
