Our Favorite Outdoor Summer Activities in Longmont

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:

Enjoying the 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. 

Walking the 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 levels. 

Teeing Off 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. 

Visiting Sunflower Farm

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!
