Fossil Creek Park is a must visit for the dino-loving little in your life. After climbing a giant Wooly Mammoth and swinging from its tusks, kids can climb through a shark’s jaw and then scale a concrete climbing wall with embedded “fossils.” The park is an ode to Colorado’s abundant geological history. Along with the great playground, the nearly 100-acre park includes a dog park, skate park, tennis courts, baseball fields, basketball courts, hockey courts, plenty of walking paths and a splash park for kids to cool off in during the summer months.Plan to visit Fossil Creek Park during your Fort Collins vacation using our convenient Fort Collins online sightseeing planner.
Fossil Creek Park reviews
We enjoy taking our grandkids to this park. Ft. Collins has some great parks and this is one of our favorites. There is a splash pad area close to the playground as well. more »
Went to the park to watch a softball game. The park is well kept, lush grass, lots for a family to do. Has a great splashpad for kids. The restrooms are adequate and clean. Highly recommend this for..... more »
I visited on a weekday morning and I was the only one there for most of the time I was there. The park feels safe because there are housing developments around it and you can see all around the rather large park. There is a large open natural area as well as mowed grass fields, trees, a playground, a concrete walking path and several bridges over the creek that runs through the park. My dog loved the squirrels and the natural area. Very pleasant to take your dog.
Baseball fields are on the north side, west of the in-line hockey rink. Because the heart of any park is all about playing, the awesome playground is in the center. In the summer there is a water park next to the giant lake and in the winter, the large hill serves as a sledding hill. They even put hay bales around possible obstacles like trees and metal poles of the picnic shelter.
