Water Features
 

The City of Fort Collins has three interactive water features for kids of all ages to enjoy.

The water features located at Spring Canyon Park, Fossil Creek Park and Oak Street Plaza Park are open and free to the public every day in the summer from Memorial Day through Labor Day. They are all closed through the winter.

Oak Street Plaza

Hours during open season 10 a.m.-10 p.m. 

Oak Street Plaza Park is located in downtown Fort Collins. It is a hardscape, cobblestone area with cafe tables and chairs where people can sit to enjoy a break from shopping or to sit and chat with their friends. In the summer, it's also a fun spot for families to enjoy, as the kids laugh with delight trying to catch the water as it jumps from the sculpted "rocks" or sprits in the air from the cobblestone. Art in Public Places worked with an artist who created the sculpted "rocks."

Spring Canyon Park

Hours during open season 9 a.m.-7 p.m. 

Spring Canyon Park located in southwest Fort Collins at 2626 W. Horsetooth Rd. The park features inspiration playground which is an adaptive playground and is one of the most popular playgrounds. The water feature is next to the playground and is activated by three black touch sensors that are located on the floor of the splash pad, sending water jumping from spot to spot and squirting into the air; much to the enjoyment of the kids at play.

Fossil Creek Park

Hours during open season 9 a.m.-7 p.m. 

Fossil Creek Park located in south Fort Collins at 5821 S. Lemay is one of our large community parks. The park offers many amenities, but one of the most popular is the water feature. It has a waterfall to splash through and various dancing water spouts. It is nestled by the lake at the water's edge, with large boulders and natural features, so it feels as if it's a part of the lake.

Water features are maintained with the same strict guidelines as those at a public pool. Water is checked several times a day to ensure it is safe for play. If the readings indicate the need, the water features are shut down until the water is once again clean and safe.

If the water feature does not seem to be working, please call 970.221.6660, Monday-Friday from 8 a.m.-5 p.m.
If it is after hours or on a weekend, call 970.219.3450.
