Tanglewood is a 10-acre site on Spring Creek, west of Taft Hill Road co-managed with City of Fort Collins Stormwater Utility. This small pocket of green space renews people and wildlife alike. Visitors may enjoy the birds that forage through the downed wood, shrubs, and vines as well those that use a small pond. A pair of red-tailed hawks has nested on the site.



Public access is available from the Spring Creek Trail, about 1/4 mile west of Taft Hill Road.
