• Crown Hill Park


  • A natural haven amid a suburban neighborhood, Crown Hill Park is a place to retreat, admire abundant birdlife and enjoy a wide range of recreation.
    Once bountiful with wheat and vegetable crops, Crown Hill is now where visitors steal away to stroll, in-line skate, cycle and run on a 1.2-mile paved trail around Crown Hill Lake, while anglers ply its shore for bass, catfish and trout. The lake provides irrigation for the neighboring Crown Hill Cemetery and does not allow for swimming, wading or floating. Equestrians enjoy a 2.25-mile loop around the park. The wetlands in the northwest corner, Kestrel Pond, is certified as a National Urban Wildlife Refuge for its value to a variety of migrating waterfowl. Kestrel Pond is closed during peak nesting season  except for official Open Space business or the occasional naturalist-led Nature Program or School Program offered by Lookout Mountain Nature Center.

    Information from
    Colorado Parks and Wildlife and Nature Center programs, usually offered in the spring, helps to guide visitors in co-existing with coyotes. Coyotes should never be fed. Dogs must be leashed at all times for their safety and that of visitors and wildlife, as in all Open Space Parks and throughout the county, with the exception of designated off-leash areas.
