One of the
most fabulous things about living in Colorado is that there’s something to do
around every corner. This is especially true in the summer. From trails to tee
times, ‘tis the season when the great outdoors become even more spectacular.
If you live
in the Longmont area, you can enjoy fun in the sun without leaving town. Some
of our favorite activities include:
Nature Area at Sandstone Ranch Park
Sandstone Ranch Park is nestled on 300+ acres of land lush
with wildlife. It doubles as a community park and nature area and offers a lot
to do, with a four-field ballpark, a skate park, an adventure playground, and a
visitor’s center. Of course, it’s also a great place to do nothing at all; it’s
the perfect spot to read a book, relax on a blanket spread across fresh-cut
grass, or find a dragon in the clouds.
Trails at Lagerman Agricultural Preserve
Lagerman Agricultural Preserve is particularly attractive if you
enjoy birdwatching; there’s a seasonal osprey nest on site. If you forget your
binoculars, don’t worry, you can also go boating, biking, walking, or horseback
riding. The preserve offers two separate trails, a 1.6-mile loop and a 4.9-mile
loop. Both are considered easy and welcoming to all skill and endurance
at Twin Peaks
Twin Peaks is an easy-to-access golf course that
offers a practice facility, a full driving range, lessons, tournament packages,
a restaurant, bar service, and stunning mountain views. The course challenges
experienced players while also welcoming those just getting into the literal
swing of things.
Taking a Dip
in the Sunset Pool
The Sunset Pool is a heated outdoor pool with a
large wading area, two speedy waterslides, six lap lanes, and three (high!)
diving boards. The depth of the water ranges from six inches to 11 feet,
offering something for everyone.
Sunflower Farm offers public hours when all are
welcome (although reservations are required). Visitors can mingle with the
animals, including goats, sheep, llamas, cows, alpaca, chickens, and peacocks,
while exploring the farm. From giant tire swings to old airplanes, there’s lots
to see and experience. Hay isn’t just for horses; it’s also for you!
