Primrose Studio

Primrose Studio at Reservoir Ridge Natural Area is available for rent by the public for gatherings.

In 2001, the late Rob and Dorothy Udall, advocates for conservation and social work donated Primrose Studio and surrounding land to the Fort Collins Natural Areas Department. The land and studio are now part of Reservoir Ridge Natural Area. It was the Udall's wish that the land be conserved and that the studio be available for groups to use. That wish came true in November, 2007 with the opening of Primrose Studio.

The studio's unique design is inspired by the spectacular setting and Dorothy Udall's art, some of which is displayed at Primrose Studio. Artist Barb McKee of Surface Strategies, Inc painted images of native grasses from Dorothy's compositions on the face of several doors and cabinets as part of the City's Art in Public Places program.

Primrose Studio is accessible with one designated handicap parking space, paved access from the parking lot to the front doors (doors are not automatic) as well as accessible interior, bathrooms and outdoor deck. There is also an accessible packed gravel trail to the edge of Claymore Lake.
