Annual Schedule

These meeting times are occasionally canceled due to weather or are superseded by local pétanque tournaments. Join our email list to get notifications of cancellations and tournaments. Our club plays each week unless the temperature dips beneath 40º F (4ºC), or in the case of heavy rain and/or lightning. During the winter if the terrain at Centennial Gardens is snowy or muddy, we also play at Commons Park at the intersection of 18th St. and Little Raven St.

Regardless if you’ve been playing your whole life or if you’re interested in the game and have never played, the Mile High Pétanque Club welcomes all levels of players. Learn to play the game from our members in a fun and easy-going environment. We occasionally offer free workshops for beginners on shooting techniques used in pointing and shooting.

Directions

Centennial Gardens

Depending on whether you’re driving in from the east or west, the easiest way to get to the gardens is off of Speer Boulevard and turning into Elitch Circle.

If you’re coming in from the east originating from downtown, you’ll want to head on North Speer Boulevard and then turn left into Elitch Circle. The turn onto Elitch Circle is before I-25 and the metal arch bridge . Once you’ve turned left onto Elitch CIrcle, go down the hill until you get to the traffic signal. You’ll make a right at the traffic light, then another right at the stop sign. The park will be on your left.

If you’re coming in from the west you’ll want to hop on South Speer Boulevard, cross the metal arch bridge, and then at the first intersection make a right onto Elitch Circle. At the bottom of the hill, you’ll make a right at the traffic light, then another right at the stop sign. The park will be on your left.

Parking

You will find parking along the road (Elitch Circle) in front of the park. During the summer months when Elitch Gardens is open, parking may become sparse and hard to come by. In order to find parking during the summer months, we recommend arriving between 08:30 am and 09:00 am MT to find an available street parking spot. Parking is free on Elitch Circle as it is street parking. The large parking lot in front of Centennial Gardens is usually a pay-to-park during the summer due to Elitch Gardens being open.
