The City of Evans has an outstanding parks and recreation system that is widely used by both Evans and Weld County residents. The maintenance of high standards in recreation and tourism is vital to ensure a prosperous economic future for the city - in fact, Colorado Lottery proceeds go to help fund parks, recreation, open space and trails throughout the state.
Evans recently opened the doors on its first community center, in addition to these activities:
Swimming: The Evans Municipal outdoor swimming pool is a wonderful asset to the city.The Recreation Department has a diversified program offering a variety of activities for all ages.
Playgrounds: Evans has more than 100 acres of developed park sites. Village Park offers two lighted tennis courts, a large playground area, pavilion, picnic tables, grills, basketball courts and open turf. City Park features a spacious playground, unique pavilion, basketball courts, softball field, horseshoe pits, picnic areas and shade provided by many large, mature trees. Finally, Riverside Park features a 15-acre lake that is stocked annually with trout. Two miles of scenic trails, fishing docks, ball fields and many acres of undeveloped open space beckon to visitors, as well.
Golf: There are seven golf courses in the Evans area, six featuring 18 holes and one 9-hole green.
Because the outdoors plays such a vital role in the area, skills workshops for children ages 4-16 abound. Youth in the area can take advantage of a head start on safe, responsible approaches to fishing, casting, marksmanship, bows, and how to read animal tracks and recognize wildlife.
