The Best Kids Activities in Longmont, Colorado

Entertaining your children all summer can seem like a monumental task; there’s a reason why parents give in and let their children become BFFs with YouTube. But living in Longmont provides the unique opportunity to enjoy the great outdoors. There are all sorts of local summertime activities to keep your children busy and happy, including the following:

Longmont Museum

The Longmont Museum focuses on the history of the region, local and international artists, and cultural explorations. It features a mix of permanent exhibits showcasing Longmont’s past, as well as short-term exhibits that rotate on a regular basis. Many of the exhibits are hands-on, which makes them especially attractive to children. The exhibit dedicated to space exploration is a kid-friendly perk, as well. 

Dickens Farm and Nature Area

Dickens Farm and Nature Area gives children a chance to interact with nature in the St. Vrain Creek. Kids can explore the discovery trails, play on the playground, tube along the slow-moving float course, hike, fish, and perfect their bike skills on the rolling terrain.

Get Air Sports 

Get Air Sports is a trampoline park that gives children a chance to get out all their extra energy. The park features wall-to-wall trampolines, foam pits, dodgeball, and an obstacle course. It has an area reserved for young children and dedicates two hours on the first Saturday of every month to jumpers with special needs. 


Longmont offers five skateparks that cater to different skill levels and feature grinding rails, fun boxes, quarter pipes, and more. Admission is free at every park but limited to hours of operation. Safety equipment is highly encouraged, especially for those whose drop-ins are likely to result in wipeouts. 

Ninja Warrior Training

The WarriorPlayground is a training facility for ninjas in the making. It offers obstacle courses, a rock wall, and organized training for kids as well as grownups. Sign your kiddo up for a class or day camp, or drop in during open gym to help them perfect their ninja skills. They’ll be tossing throwing stars in your direction before you know it. 

Whether you’re looking to enjoy fun in the sun (or under fluorescent lighting), Longmont doesn’t disappoint. With so much to do, there are plenty of chances to give the little ones a summer they can brag about.
