Yes, we are three hours from Breckenridge and Steamboat for skiing. But when not skiing, what else is there to do on the Front Range! Ice skate, play tennis and swim! Along with our neighborhood pool and very nice tennis courts within a very easy walking distance, Fort Collin’s offers the following venues for skating, tennis, swimming, and horseshoes!
Just about one mile north of Waterford Inn along the Power Trail, Edora Park features a wide variety of activities.
Tennis – six lighted courts plus six 12’ high cinderblock backboards to beat balls against.
Disc Golf – http://www.dgcoursereview.com/course.php?id=6608 or http://www.pdga.com/course-directory/course/edora-park A well manicured 18 hole, 5848 foot course that is moderately hilly and lightly wooded with multiple pin placements. The creek comes into play on 5 holes.
Horseshoes – A huge facility with 32 lighted pits, Edora Park hosts organized league play plus local and state tournaments.
Edora Park Pool and Ice Center (EPIC) http://www.fcgov.com/recreation/epic.php EPIC is the region’s premier ice and aquatics facility. EPIC is home to the CSU Hockey and Water Polo Teams as well as the Fort Collins Area Swim Team and Fort Collins Figure Skating Club. It features an indoor 50-meter x 25-yard pool, two 3-meter and two 1-meter diving boards, separate warm water pool and wading pool, and two indoor 200′ x 85′ ice surfaces.
Skate Park – this 17,500-square-foot concrete facility boasts snake runs, bowls, ramps and rails. The integrated design allows for a seamless flow between park structures, while also catering to varying expertise levels.
Pond Skating – I didn’t think it would get cold enough here for pond skating but there are several ponds available for winter skating. City Park and Prospect Ponds have sections of the ponds that are scraped and prepped for outdoor hockey or casual skating.
