The Farm at Lee Martinez Park introduces kids to agricultural heritage by letting them meet farm animals up close; ponies are available for rides in the summer.
For an indoor, all-season swimming/skating sensation, drop in at EPIC –the Edora Pool and Ice Center – the city’s largest swimming facility that also houses two sheets of ice for open skates and amateur hockey league play. And, if you prefer skating on dry land, check out the city’s skate parks in Edora Park and Fossil Creek Park. Just watch out for the flying disks sailing around the disk golf courses. There’s a reason locals call our town Fort Fun.
Then there’s the actual Fort Fun: the family amusement spot complete with mini golf, bowling, go-karts, laser tag, paddle boats, arcade games, and a full-service kitchen for refueling. Groups of all ages can enjoy Fort Fun.
For indoor excitement, experience the incredible hands-on exhibits at the Fort Collins Museum of Discovery. Changing displays and special events make learning fun. The Environmental Learning Center is a 212-acre nature preserve just minutes from downtown and includes nearly three miles of trails, four habitats, several ponds, and plant and animal life to explore. The injured birds of prey at the Rocky Mountain Raptor Center, located on East Vine Drive, welcome visitors interested in their rehabilitation and release.
