Playground for those kiddos who like and are good at climbing. They can climb a tusked mammoth that is 6ft tall. Concrete climbing wall towards one of the slides. Lots of spinning columns for kids that love to spin. Not for anxious parents or you might find yourself 6ft up a mammoth doing a rescue mission.

Excellent community park. Plenty of parking, established trees around lower outfield area so plenty of shade to pinic under between games. Play ground, dog park, and small ponds close at hand with nice walking trail. Uptodate bathrooms in between ball diamonds. Entire facility very well maintained, beautiful view of the Rockies.

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.

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.
