Van Bibber Creek


Address: From the eastern slope of Mt. Tom, SE of Golden Gate Park, to Ralston Creek at Garrison St. in Arvada

This creek was named for Isaac Van Bibber, whose farm was in the vicinity of the creek in 1859. When the creek reached Arvada, it was called Dry Creek because there was little water left when it joined Ralston Creek at Garrison Street.
