This is a GREAT location in the south part of Fort Collins that has multiple trails that are GREAT for running, walking and biking. There are also large grassy, open areas for kicking a soccer ball or throwing a football.

This is a great park to walk your dog it is clean and wonderful but smells funny probably something to do with the 3 small ponds/lakes with all the geese and ducks. They also have a dog play area if you are into letting your dog play with others.

No particular destination in mind, just me & my Trip Advisor app- and the clear blue sunny sky with pleasant November weather... just called for a local park. What a treat! I delighted myself in a pleasant walk and a fun learning experience, equaling a wonderful afternoon!

A unique park in the southeast part of town. Good place for children and just walking the trails around the area.

We used to live right by here, and the park is fantastic. There is a walking trail that goes around the lake, baseball fields, kids play areas, and a dog park. I highly recommend it.

I live 3/4 mile away so go all the time but I do think it's a really great park. There's ball fields soccer fields, ice hockey,, a great playground but most importantly for me a great dog park. Go have fun

My kids love this place. Great things for them to climb, slide, spin, swing, and just burn off energy on. I wish they didn't have wood chipc, but that's about it.

We LOVE Fossil Creek Park, and visit it often. The one downside is the location of the bathrooms not being near the playground. As a fun treasure hunt, look for REAL fossils near the entrance sign on Lemay Ave. A local geologist often hides them there just for fun!

My kids love this park! With so many parks in Fort Collins it's hard to decide which one to go to but this one has a great splash park and walking area. The play area is amazing so much to do the kids will never get bored!

So many activities can be practiced here. There is a dog park, although not as large as Spring Canyon Park, a very large pond to walk around, an inviting gazebo and a themed fossil park for children.
