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. 

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 reservations must be made at least 10 business days prior to the reservation date. 

Park fees depend on the number of people attending and the duration of the event. For the first five hours of the reservation, the fees are listed below. For every hour in addition to your five hour reservation, there's a fee of $5 per hour. 

Fees for Five Hour Reservation:

  • 1 - 25 people (Little Freddie only) - $20
  • 1 - 50 people - $20
  • 51 - 99 people - $30
  • 100 - 199 people - $50
  • $5 for each additional hour after the first 5 hours of reservation
  • 200+ people - contact Town Hall for pricing
Once you have submitted your park reservation, you will be emailed by Town staff to confirm the reservation and the park fees. The email will have details on how to pay the fees since we do not accept online payments. Payments are accepted at Town Hall either by check, cash or credit/debit card or by calling Town Hall at 720-382-5500 to pay with a credit/debit card.
