Animas River

The Animas River flows through Durango and the city’s Parks and Recreation Department maintains a network of trails and parks along the river. The Powerhouse, one of the earliest coal-fired alternating current (AC) electric plants in the world, can be seen in the upper image between the river and Camino Del Rio. The Powerhouse is now home to the Powerhouse Science Center, Southwest Colorado’s hands-on, interactive science center for all ages.
