Flanders Park - 2229 Breakwater Dr
Flanders Park, located north of McIntosh Lake across from Dawson Park, was designed by City staff and constructed by ECI Site Construction Management. It was opened to the public in 1995. It is named for the Flanders family, leaders
in Longmont's business and civic affairs for five generations. The family
is descended from Frederick Walter Flanders (1866-1935), a prominent realtor
and banker who moved to Longmont in 1904, and served as its mayor in 1927-28,
when he ousted the mayor supported by the Ku Klux Klan. The park is on the
site of the Flanders farm; a historic marker identifies a remnant of the milk
Flanders Park features the City's first multiple-use court suitable
for both roller hockey and basketball. Xeriscape landscaping showcases hardy
and native plants along the pathways, which offer spectacular views of McIntosh
Lake and the mountains to the west. The shelter located at the playground is reservable for a $35.00 for resident and $44.00 for non-resident. (link to shelter reservations).
McIntosh Lake district park connects Flanders Park to Dawson park and the Lohr Agricultural Heritage Center. This 4.1 acre park is accessed from its parking lot off North Shore Drive.
