The planning for Dovetail Park began back in 2019, and construction began last July. It seems like the wait was definitely worth it because this park looks amazing.

  • Picnic pavilion
  • Playground
  • Walking paths

This seems awesome for all ages. I am not a parent, but I could imagine if I were, I would want to hang out in the hammock garden when I wait for my kids to get rid of all of their energy.

Parks are far more entertaining these days compared to when I was a kid, and here is a prime example of that.

Northern Colorado has many epic parks, and Dovetail might be the best one yet. Look out Twin Silo Park, you have some new competition.

Dovetail Park's Hours

The park is open from 5 a.m. to 11:00 p.m. seven days a week.

Here is the address: 2609 Palomino Ct, Fort Collins, CO 80525
