CSU Spur is working to reach full capacity of programming throughout 2022; please note that not all programming is currently available every day. Please check the CSU Spur calendar of events for a daily schedule.

CSU Spur is now open

Come to CSU Spur to learn about and be inspired by the latest research around water, food, and health. 

Visit CSU Spur for a day of activities with the kids, to spend time with friends in a beautiful outdoor space, to watch veterinarians at work, see horses rehabilitate on underwater treadmills, take a cooking class, talk to experts about how to grow your own food, and visit our rooftop greenhouse.

CSU Spur is free and open to the public year-round — visitors are welcome from 9 a.m. to 5 p.m. Monday-Saturday, see below for information on directions and parking.
