  • The Fossil Creek, it will be a good place to have kids and animals there. But people needs to clean up their dog poo when they are in the dog Park. It's nasty and stinky. Sometimes it doesn't have poo bags there dogs are going on top of benches when there's a sign that says dogs can't be on benches. And no water for the dogs, the water was off so we couldn't have water for anybody. But I'll get 5 stars because it's a neat place to walk and I love the the Lakes and the fossils that you can walk in and see they look like dinosaur bones. Great place
  • Clean and close to home with plenty of amenities. This time I was checking out a covered picnic pavilion that has 18 8-person picnic tables, charcoal grills, running water and electricity. All well maintained. Can be reserved ahead of time for a reasonable price.
  • This is a great park. The playplace area is large and we'll maintained. The dog park is equipped with lights so you can stay past sundown and the mulch prevents it from getting muddy. If you can't find a tennis ball try looking on the far side of the park. The food trucks park in the south lot in the summer and have awesome food selections. Beware of parking during baseball season though the lots get very full.
  • This is a great dog park. My favorite in town. Mostly attentive dog owners that aren't on their phones texting away unlike the one off of Horsetooth. Four stars because it is a dirt pit with some mulch. I wish there was some grassy areas.
  • Great park with lots to do. Lots of open space, good trails for running or biking, a decent skate park, and a great play space. This place has it all.
