What makes Vail, Colorado a community — and not just a resort town? It could be the access to the arts or the strong school systems. Maybe it’s the number of year-round residents (like us) who work and play together.
Or maybe it’s the number of public parks and open spaces that rounds out the small-town community feel.
The town of Vail has many well-maintained parks, gardens and open spaces. These public areas are perfect for everything from playground days to picnics. We built a map and wrote about some of our favorite local parks to help you plan the perfect Vail day — and really feel part of our community.
