Overland Park Playground Renovation (PDF)

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 September to mid-October, 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.

Edora Park Restroom Facility - CLOSED

The restroom facility at Edora Park was heavily damaged due to a fire set by vandals.  As a result, the restroom is now closed until repairs can be made, which may take serveral weeks.  In the meantime, portable toilets have been made available.

Making Play Fun, Safe and Accessible! (PDF)

Children’s play areas are a core service of Fort Collin’s park system. From pocket parks to large-scale settings, play areas of all sizes give children across the Fort Collins the opportunity to explore, engage and enjoy the world around them.  Parks’ Certified Playground Inspectors visit playgrounds on a regular basis looking for maintenance and vandalism issues which prompts various projects.
