Legacy Park

300 Woodlawn Dr, Fort Collins, CO

Legacy Park is located north of the Poudre River, adjacent to the Hickory Trail and near the Lake Canal diversion structure.

Our river safety initiative, “Play it Safe on the Poudre,” highlights this park through newly installed safety and educational signage along the river, public outreach and other means. Legacy Park is a take-out location for the Cache la Poudre River because of the Lake Canal diversion structure.
