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.

Nice pavilion with clean bathrooms, wonderful dog park and general play area, plus sledding hill in winter. Often used by groups, so parking can be problematic at times.

This is a free sledding hill. There is also free parking, it is near downtown and there is a nice little dog park adjacent. The sledding hill is wide, but can get busy. The walk back up the hill will leave flatlanders breathless. Lots of fun.

Carter Park has a nice sledding area for the kids. There are no sleds to rent. You have to buy your own sleds. Parking is very limited, so go early.
