Great place for birthday parties. All rec sports events play there at one time or another. There is a skateboard course. There are nice bike paths that connect to Fort Collins and to mountain bike paths. There is a water park on the Horsetooth side that little guys love. There is a play park next to that. And even a...

This is THE best large park in FoCo, hands down. There's an area designed for the tykes as well as the older kids. Lots of open space and even a small water feature to play in.

We stopped here on a long road trip to stretch out and get some fresh air. We walked along a gravel trail for about a mile and caught a glimpse of the reservoir (the trails go much further but the kids wanted to turn around). We saw people playing kickball, flying model airplanes, and though we don't have a dog,... More

I read a few of the reviews and felt compelled to post. Spring Canyon Park is a nice park. It isn't Disneyland, it's a nice park. In the summer there is a water park area that's wonderful for kids to play in. There is a playground for bigger kids and one for little kids. On exceptionally hot days in the... More

This is a little hard to find and connects to several trails so I thought it would be a nice place for a dog walk. It was okay but not spectacular for being so close to water and the mountains. We wandered on part of Spring Creek Trail and were surprised to see horses living so close to the trail.... More

My grandchildren found this to be memorable as the worst park they went to on a lengthy road trip. Signage was awful, but once we found the place, the playground was deserted and shadeless (on a day in the 90s), and the equipment was far less imaginative than nearly every other playground that we went to. The kids walked for... More

The scenery is awesome, it's right at the foot of the mountains, is an awesome place for families. The playground is fun, the splash yard thingy is awesome. My daughter had a blast. Can't wait to go again!

I love this park. There's something for everyone! Concrete path connects to bike path that goes for miles, or hop onto the dirt trail to the west that takes you through the Pine Ridge Natural Area, where you'll compete for trail space with dozens of other runners, walkers and mountain bikers (the big loop is about 5 miles). To the... More

While all of Fort Collins parks are great, especially City Park, Spring Canyon remains my favorite. Not only does it have great views but is walkable and there are not a lot of scheduled activities leaving it open and very accesible.
