With a steadily growing population of just more than 19,000, residents of Windsor can select from a variety of recreational activities in many locations throughout the community. In addition to picturesque Windsor Lake, more than 200 acres of land have been dedicated to parks and recreational facilities. These include an outdoor swimming pool, two outdoor in-line hockey rinks, a skate park, two dog parks, more than 40 miles of walking, biking and in-line skating paths, several playground/sport/recreational parks and the Windsor Community Recreation Center. The Windsor Parks and Recreation Department is committed to providing the highest quality recreational experiences while simultaneously preserving the resources, wildlife and history in the area. An active and dynamic park and recreation program, an abundance of modern facilities and the variety of activities available keep Windsor residents active year-round.
The 19-mile long Poudre River Trail is a big hit with Windsor residents. With connections to Greeley and future connections to Timnath and Fort Collins, the trail offers walking, biking, running, rollerblading or any other non-motorized travel. Recreational enthusiasts will also enjoy historical sites, educational opportunities and some of the most beautiful scenery available in Northern Colorado.
