Come Visit Our Lastest Community Park!

Spring Canyon Community Park

Spring Canyon Community Park boasts 100 acres nestled against the foothills of western Fort Collins.  After 20 months of construction, Spring Canyon opened to the public in the fall of 2007. 

Featuring both traditional and unique amenities, only at Spring Canyon will you find:

  • Inspiration Playground, Colorado’s first universally accessible playground.
  • A 2+ acre dog park complete with a lake for our doggie paddling pals.
  • A free ride course for endless mountain biking fun. 

These features, coupled with easy access to Cottonwood Glen Neighborhood Park and Pine Ridge Natural Area, make the Spring Canyon Community Park truly unique.

Plus, with traditional amenities such as picnic shelters, trails, open turf areas, ballfields, lighted basketball and tennis courts, Art in Public Places projects, and scenic landscapes, Spring Canyon Community Park has something for everyone.

Spring Canyon Community Park also plays a key role in connecting Fort Collins' hard surface trail system, as Spring Creek Trail and Fossil Creek Trail connect at the park site.  Parking lots are available at either end of the park, including the north side at Overland Trail and the south side at Horsetooth Road. 

For information regarding Spring Canyon shelter reservations or shelter reservations at City Park, Edora Park, Fossil Creek Community Park, and/or Rolland Moore Park, please visit or contact the Parks Shop at 970-221-6660.
