Bulrush Wetland Park is located just over two miles west of I-25 on CO-52. This unique plant and bird sanctuary offers a great educational opportunity as well as a haven for wildlife enthusiasts. Check out this map to find trails and see where the different types of vegetation grow.

Created as a wetland mitigation bank, Bulrush Wetland Park was granted a charter by the Army Corps of Engineers. The developers of the wetlands donated the property to Frederick, who took over management of the wetlands in 2007. The Engineering and Utilities department has developed and executes a management plan for the wetlands to insure the maintenance of the constructed wetlands per the original charter. The management plan includes weed control, irrigation and yearly controlled burns to foster continued bio-diversity. Day to day operations related to the management plan are contracted to a wetland biologist. 

Because Bulrush Wetland Park is an eco-habitat that must be protected, it  is open by appointment only from sunrise to sunset. Periodic closures may also occur to protect wildlife and for resource management. Please use our reservation system to schedule an appointment. All appointments must be made at least one week in advance.
