    As a result of poor planning the original "main" street of Silver CIty was flooded numerous times and finally relegated to the "big ditch park" status.  more »

    It's a quiet, tranquil place to sit down and have a cup of coffee, take photos, and walk the bridge that connects the park to downtown. Lots of trees and a small stream that flows through the park. Do...  more »

    A beautiful and shady retreat from the heat of the day - a nice space to spend some quiet time away from the norm.  more »

    The best place to go for a walk in town outside of the monsoons. Cool in the summer heat, and easy to cross all streets. Help keep it clean and safe. Take your dog for a walk or contribute another mural. The ditch is always down.

    I was born in Silver City 1948. I used to cross over the "arroyo" Big Ditch when I attended elementary school 1953-1957. It was on a very narrow steel bridge which I found scary but I had to do it. I also remember playing in the arroyo but I can't remember how we got down into it. Must have been a path somewhere. I still consider Silver City my home town with cherished memories of my family & friends.

    Again while in Silver we walked along the creek. If you find a place with pictures of the big floods of the past you will learn why this is named the Big Ditch. That said just take a stroll along the creek in old down town Silver City. it is a wonderful, peaceful, shady, series of benches, stairs and walkways along the creek. With several bridges it is easily accessible from either side of the creek and is a nice escape, especially on a warm afternoon. Sometime it is a great place to read undisturbed. Sometimes it is the site of a roaring creek. Come on over and take a walk, it is always pleasing!
