Directions To The O’Connor Pavilion Feel free to drive out and walk around the property.  The gate will be locked if there are no events taking place.  If the gate is open there is an event going on and we ask that you show respect and not walk the property during an event.The O’Connor Pavilion is located at 1700 Fish Hatchery Road which is 3 miles northwest of downtown Estes Park, off highway 34.  To get there:

1.  Take Highway 34 towards the Fall River entrance to Rocky Mountain National Park, (travel about 3 miles from the junction of Highway 34 bypass and Highway 34 commercial – Elkhorn Avenue.  The intersection of McDonalds and the bronze statue of the Big Horn Sheep).

2.  Make a left onto Fish Hatchery Road.  (Just before you need to turn, you will see a sign on your right for the museum.  There is also a Church just off the road at the corner of Hwy 34 and Fish Hatchery Road).  Follow Fish Hatchery Road about 1 mile.  If you get to Rocky Mountain National Park you’ve gone too far.

3.  The O’Connor Pavilion entrance is on your left just before the bridge.  Just off the roadway between some trees you will see a locked gray gate.  If you end up at the Historic Fall River Hydroplant Museum, which is a dead end, you’ve gone too far.

4.  Enter through the gray gate.  Go up the dirt/gravel road until it opens up into a large meadow.  Your designated event parking is in the open meadow on the left.

5.  The O’Connor Picnic Shelter and grounds are located down the hill on your right, next to the river.

6.  The Hydroplant Museum parking lot, on the north side of the river, is restricted for use by Museum visitors and Handicap Only parking.  No vehicles may be left in the parking lot overnight.
