Fort Collins Parks will be renovating the Spring Canyon Bike Skills Park as part of the Parks Life Cycle program, in collaboration with the Overland Mountain Bike Club.

The existing equipment and surfacing will be removed and replaced with new equipment and surfacing. This is provided as part of the Life Cycle program by the Parks Division. Construction will take place in early October and should be completed within the month, weather dependent.

The design intent of the new playground supports the park name, which refers to the historic stagecoach/wagon trail that was heavily used by settlers to the West.
