Park Facility Rules & Regulations

EPAMD Rules & Regulations 

Park Hours:

Most Loveland parks are open from 6:00 a.m. - 10:30 p.m. daily, unless otherwise specified on-site. However, Loveland Sports Park and River's Edge Natural Area hours vary depending on the season. Please refer to specific park web pages or call (970) 962-2727 for more information.

Using a Grill in the Park?

Please note that the grills located in the parks are for charcoal use.  When using the charcoal grills, you must make sure the coals are completely extinguished before vacating the site.  You may leave the remaining coals/ash to continue cooling and our Parks Workers will eliminate the ashes when they clean the grills before their next use.If you prefer to use a gas grill, you are welcome to bring your own to the park, as long as you use it on a paved/cement surface and you allow it time to cool so you may take it with you when you leave.  We do not allow grills or cookers of any kind to be left behind in the parks. 

Park Watering:

The City of Loveland parks are watered by utilizing several different water sources. Some are watered with potable water, while others are watered with raw water, well water or water from ponds. It all depends on the park location. Some of those water sources are very stressed or may become unavailable during unusually warm months or during drought seasons. Therefore, in order to maintain the grass in the parks, we may move regularly scheduled games/events to other locations during stressed times. If you are planning to have an event in one of the parks, you may want to check with the Parks & Recreation Administration Office at (970) 962-2727 to be certain that your event is not going to conflict with that park's watering schedule. Sprinklers are "winterized" in the Fall season, and the grasses will go dormant during cold months.

UPDATE:  Noticing the “dry spots” in Loveland’s Parks?

With the severe heat and dry summer conditions in past years, there have been shortages of available parks irrigation water in Loveland.  In addition, we have experienced irrigation system mechanical problems with the Civic Center irrigation pump/well in the past few years.  Therefore, the City amended its irrigation schedule to conserve water in 2012-2013.  This may have resulted in dry spots throughout the parks system. Don’t be surprised to see Loveland’s City parks looking drier than normal as we transition our sprinklers systems off and blow them out each Fall season as well.  For additional information regarding this issue, please contact Larry Callihan, Parks Manager through the Parks & Recreation Administration Office at (970) 962-2727.  We will watch this as we move forward and post an update again if more information becomes available.

Seasonal Pruning & Maintenance:

Please be aware that the City parks are maintained throughout the year, but they are transitioned during the Fall season into a more dormant/down time for the Winter season. The Fall season maintenance includes pruning and trimming of foliage, plants and trees.  For more information and tips about the green & growing places in Loveland, please see the following web page for Forestry/Horticulture guidelines.
