Recreational Facilities in Fort Collins

Recreational Facilities

Family friendly activities abound in and around Fort Collins, especially in the summer. Who wouldn't want to ride a miniature train through one of the city's prettiest parks? After that, skip across the street and spend the afternoon in City Park Pool, complete with water features, slides, zero-depth entry, a lazy river and wading pool, all with the youngest swimmers in mind. A farm, ice rink, and the state's only completely accessible playground are also included in the many city facilities open to the public. Enjoy!
