Took our 4 yr old here, went down 5-6 times...wife inadvertently hit the jump and bumped her bum :) Saw a red Fox too, but she was too sly for the camera...

We brought our grandkids and our two little dogs here to burn off some energy. The playground equipment is well maintained and there is a nice variety of things for the kids to play on. The dog park is nearby as is a pavilion. Nice to find this amenity near where we were staying.

I went several times during my 2 week stay with my Siberian Husky. She loved it! The park is tightly fenced with two self-latching gates. People seemed very nice and all the dogs were friendly and playful.

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
