Be A Good Steward: Protect & Respect Your Parks & Trails

Spring Canyon Park - 2626 W Horsetooth - Inspiration Playground

The City of Fort Collins Parks will be making major repairs at Spring Canyon Community Park Inspiration Playground starting on August 24th

The playground surfacing will be removed and replaced.  The repairs will cause full closure of the playground, with the east side of the playground being closed first, followed by the west side. 

Additional playground work, including repairing the hill slide, will also be taking place in conjunction with the surfacing replacement.  The timing of the project is scheduled to take place after children are back in school but before cooler fall weather temperatures set in. 

Approximate Dates of Construction:

  • Tot Playground (2-5 year olds on the east side) closed: August 24th – September 6th   (Construction delays have extended this end date for a short period) COMPLETED
  • School Age Playground (5-12 year olds on the west side) closed: September 6th – September 23rd    Delayed one week to Oct 3

These playground improvements are needed to maintain the accessibility and safety for the public at the playground. During the playground closure, we recommend utilizing the playground at nearby Cottonwood Glen Park or Fossil Creek Community Park.
