Loveland Parks & Recreation 500 E. Third St., Suite 200 Loveland, CO 80537 970.962.2727 We are proud to focus efforts on the National Recreation & Park Association’s Three Pillars of Parks & Recreation: Conservation, Health & Wellness and Social Equity, ensuring we make a positive impact on the quality of life in Loveland. In the Conservation Pillar, our parks are critically important in preserving natural resources that have quantifiable economic benefits to our community in addition to intrinsic environmental, aesthetic and recreation benefits. Oftentimes, parks and recreation agencies are the only voice for ensuring that open space is protected, that our youth have access to nature-related areas and that services and outdoor education are available. In the Health & Wellness Pillar, our parks and recreation staff are leaders in improving and enhancing health and wellness by offering fitness, sports and healthy lifestyle classes for people of all ages and abilities. We are actively engaged in reducing obesity, physical inactivity and poor nutrition while strengthening skills that enrich our mind, body and overall attitude. In the Social Equity Pillar, our department embraces complete access and inclusion to parks and recreation services and facilities. We strive to be a catalyst for ensuring that all residents have equal access to our resources and services, and we offer opportunities that transcend barriers of income with low income fee structure and scholarship opportunities through our Foundation. A growing 20-mile paved trail system provides safe recreational opportunities that are accessible to a variety of users, including those with barriers to mobility.

FROM THE DIRECTOR It’s been a wonderful summer filled with happy memories of children and families visiting our amazing parks, day camps and environmental education programs, swimming at Winona outdoor pool and the Lake Loveland Swim Beach, the beginning of the farmers market at Fairgrounds Park, the addition of more natural areas to conserve and enjoy, happy dogs and their humans enjoying the dog parks and hundreds of multi-generations and all abilities exploring our glorious and growing trail system. Elizabeth R. Kayl, CPRP It’s been a busy and rewarding Director, Parks & Recreation summer. Our Recreation Division introduced two new successful programs: the Mobile Recreation Trailer and Movies in the Park, bringing the fun directly to you! It’s truly a Division “on the move!” The Parks and Planning Divisions coordinated many new capital improvements and planned for the grand re-openings this fall of such projects as the replacement of the synthetic field at Loveland Sports Park and the beginning of Phase II of the Sports Park, the remodel of the cemetery office and shop and the completion of both phases of work at the beloved Viestenz-Smith Mountain Park in the Big Thompson Canyon. We think you’ll love the new natural design and feel of this mountain oasis!

The Open Lands and Trails Division acquired numerous grant awards, providing sizeable financial support to address invasive species removal, provide a trail counter, and most importantly, provide funding to build trails at Prairie Ridge, Long View Trail, Front Range Trail, Madison Avenue Trail connection to Old St. Louis and tackle countless stewardship projects throughout the city. And let’s not forget our Golf Division! With the popular Games on the Range, SNAG, and all of our many tournaments, lessons and play for all ages, Loveland golf was a summer favorite for leisure and exercise, with record numbers appreciating some of the best courses in Colorado. Continue to keep in touch and get involved with Parks and Recreation. We are here for you and want to assist you in finding your kind of play, health and fitness. Make value of your leisure time by reaching your goals, discovering new adventures, increasing your knowledge and most of all, having FUN doing it! Fall is in the air! “I cannot endure to waste anything so precious as autumnal sunshine by staying in the house. So I have spent almost all the daylight hours in the open air.” - Nathaniel Hawthorne Have a happy and peaceful autumn!

Golf Operations Manager What brought you to Loveland golf? Loveland golf has some very unique attributes that are attractive. There is a longtime player base that supports local golf. Cool offerings such as SNAG & the Cattail Creek course that are great for newcomers to the game. Two unique 18-hole golf courses that can be fun to play over and over again. Loveland golf has a group of long tenured dedicated staff that are a joy to work with as well as a team of dedicated professionals in the Parks and Recreation Department that make coming to work a joy. Finally, Colorado! Any “outdoor” person would love a chance to live, work and play in Loveland, Colorado. What are you looking forward to in the future with our courses? All the basics are in place for a quality golf experience in Loveland. What I look forward to is bringing new faces/players to our facilities. There are the obvious challenges with aging properties but more importantly I want to share the value of the game and what is Loveland golf with as many novice through experienced players as we can comfortably fit onto the courses. For many outdoor enthusiasts golf is just another way to enjoy the Colorado outdoor experience. Families, professionals, children of all ages can participate their whole lives. Such a great sport!
