Adventure Description

Adventure Description

Contributor

Lake Loveland has existed for more than 100 years in the city of Loveland, created in 1893 out of what was then a marshland known as Hays Lake. The lake has long been redeveloped as a more serene and peaceful place, and situated at its northwestern corner, North Lake Park has a full complement of outdoor activities ideal for families.

The park features a swim beach, for example, and a large playground with a giant plastic octopus and a play structure with the mast of a galleon. Families will find the play areas of North Lake Park to be very welcoming for children, with ample space and numerous jungle-gym structures to swing from. In addition, picnickers and park visitors will find a large grassy area to lay a blanket and a covered picnic area to escape the summer sunshine. The park also boasts Owen’s Field, a baseball diamond, soccer fields, and tennis, basketball, and horseshoe courts. During the summer, the park operates a concessions stand that sells hot dogs.

Operating seasonally, the Buckhorn Northern Railroad is a miniature train that carries visitors throughout the summer season. The train is a replica of the steam train that once hauled clay across Loveland.

Additionally, Loveland Lake supports a population of fish and hosts the Annual Loveland Fishing Derby. Fishers may drop a line from the banks of the lake or at the fishing dock at the Duck Pond.

Watercraft are not allowed at North Lake Park.
