Nestled along the shores of Silver Lake, and with a focus on arts and the environment, Silverwood Park is unique in the metro area. Minutes from a busy freeway, it offers visitors an opportunity to relax in tranquil beauty and provides inspiration for artists. Stop in the coffee shop, bring an instrument and share your musical talents, or simply set up your easel in the park to paint. Artists are welcome here!
Nature-inspired art classes taught by Silverwood staff and outside expert instructors are offered year-round. Sign up for a ceramics class, join in on a photo workshop, or expand your musical skills. Whether you’re interested in mastering a new creative skill, seeking a peaceful retreat, planning a birthday pARTy, looking for a site for a family picnic, searching for a beautiful setting for a wedding, or just meeting up with friends for a cup of coffee, Silverwood has something to offer everyone from preschoolers to seniors.
Trails offering spectacular views of Silver Lake, restored prairie, and mature oak forests circle the park and provide inspiration to all. And the visitor center bustles with activity on a daily basis. Other park amenities include an art gallery, education facilities, event rental space, a café/coffee shop, picnic sites, fishing opportunities, canoe and kayak rentals, an outdoor performance space and more.
Silverwood Park will host a summer-long arts festival featuring a series of outdoor performances of local music, theater and visual arts. Visit Silverwood OnStage to learn more.
