Great park in Central Breckenridge that also includes a great fenced dog park. In the winter there is a nice long tubing hill to play. It is located on what was once the ski hill for Breck Elementary School. Now they go to the ski area.

It''s not really a hiking park as some have written but this is a good place to take kids to throw a frisbee or sled depending on the time of year.

Skip this one for sure, unless you enjoy walking through the backyards of the wealthy. This trek was absolutely rubbish. It's behind a school and nice dog park, but not worth the time.

While there is tennis, mountain biking, fields to play in, picnic tables, etc....we go mainly for the awesome dog park. Nice grass (though there is a large dirt patch, it doesn't seem muddy), friendly owners and great poop bags. It all comes with dramatic views of the ski runs and ends with a tired & happy dog.

Jake's Cruel Joke a nice hike---steeps steps to get up, and the a bunch of switchbacks to get higher. Interesting descent. Nice morning hike (and you can finish with pastries from La Francais ;) )

I take my two border collies here all the time and they absolutely LOVE the doggie park to the degree that they freak out when we turn the corner on the way there. It has a drinking fountain for them during the summer, loads of space to run and play with the other pups, doggie clean up bags and trash... More

We stop here often to run our dogs in the dog park. Great facility. Sledding hill is also fun. Indoor bathrooms are available year-round. Parking can be a little hard to find. Park on the other side of the school if the lot is full.

Nice free park to bring your sled or tube to use. Not too big to exhaust you carrying the sled up, and a fun little hill. Even our teenagers enjoyed it, once they got the hang of little jumps and going head first. Dog park next door was full of dogs enjoying the snow. The water fountain had the pipe... More

Great FREE activity for the family during your early days acclimating to the altitude. Easy walk up the hill and a fun and fast ride down. Right next to the dog park too.

This is a clean public park. It's free but parking can get full. There is a dog park next to it but all fences in. We bought some sleds at Walmart for $5 and made a day of sledding. I even enjoyed going up and down the mountain. Best ever day for the kids.
