  • Fishing 
    North Pond Park offers great fishing in this mountain wetland. The Blue River also offers a great chance for fly fishermen to get out and test their mettle.
  • Golfing
    The Raven at Three Peaks Golf Club is continually acclaimed as one of the best courses in Colorado, so make sure to take the opportunity to try it out for yourself.

    This park is huge! With 7 acres, there are tennis courts, basketball courts, sand volleyball courts, a skate park, picnic shelters and more.
