Miner's Heritage Park

OreCart300dpiLocated adjacent to Fellin Park, on the south side of the park near the gazebo, the Miner’s Heritage Park is the location of the Highgrader’s Holiday, Ouray’s annual hard rock mining competition held at the end of August.  Highgrader’s Holiday is a non-profit competitive event showcasing the strength and skill of the men and women who make their livings extracting ore from the hard rock of the San Juan Mountains. During the rest of the year the Mining Heritage Park offers visitors an opportunity to see mining tools and equipment once used in area mines.
