Use of Parks, Trails and Open Spaces
A Message from Elizabeth Kayl, Director, City of Loveland Parks & Recreation
Being outdoors and staying physically active are important aspects of protecting your physical and mental health. Now, more than ever, parks and trails are playing a critical and essential role in the quality of life in our community.
We encourage you to use these public spaces to get outdoors, remain physically active and enjoy time with your family.
We ask that you please follow the CDC’s guidelines for social distancing in public parks and trails, making sure to keep six feet of distance between yourself and others and no more than 4 people gathered at one time in a group.
To report violations call 970.498.5500.
Our dedicated parks staff are cleaning restrooms and parks on a regular basis, but we need your help following our guidelines.
Enjoy Loveland’s 32 parks, 23 miles of paved recreation trail and 20 miles of soft-surface trails.
These are unprecedented times, and your Loveland Parks & Recreation Department understands that these changes affect your normal leisure routines. With that, we are dedicated to keeping outdoor spaces safe, clean and accessible. Stay safe, and be well.
Director, City of Loveland Parks & Recreation
Parks & Recreation may not be top of mind for everyone when thinking about essential services in a city.
But for us, we live and breathe public service every day. We’re always asking ourselves, How can we bring value to Loveland and create opportunities for everyone to live their best lives?
Our department unites people and creates a sense of community along the way. Each time you participate in a recreation activity, use our recreation trail, play in a park, explore open lands or swing a club at one of our golf courses, you are part of our community.
Our vision is to provide a sustainable system of diverse parks, trails, natural areas and facilities that connect people with the natural environment, support good health and offer outstanding community experiences while balancing recreation opportunities with the protection of natural and cultural resources.
We have something for everyone, and we’re here to serve. Thanks for being part of our community.
The mission of the City of Loveland Parks & Recreation Department is to provide effective, efficient and high-quality leisure facilities, sites, services and programs for citizens of and visitors to the community.
We embrace this mission through the three pillars of parks and recreation to make a positive impact on the quality of life: conservation, health & wellness and social equity.
Three Pillars of Parks & Recreation
Health & Wellness - Improving Health, Enhancing Life
Our staff are leaders in recreation, sports and nutrition and offer fitness, sports and nutrition lifestyle classes for people of all ages and abilities. They seek to reduce obesity, physical inactivity and poor nutrition while strengthening skills that enrich body, mind and attitude.
Conservation - Preserving Natural Resources
Oftentimes, parks and recreation agencies are the only voice for ensuring that open space is protected, our youth have access to nature-related areas and that services and outdoor education are available. These have quantifiable economic benefits to our community.
Social Equity - Access and Inclusion for All
We strive to be a catalyst for ensuring all residents have equal access to our resources and services. We offer opportunities that transcend barriers of income through outreach activities such as our mobile recreation trailer and movies in the park. We also provide scholarships via our Parks & Recreation Foundation.
