Flanders Park - 2229 Breakwater Dr

Flanders Park Playground Image

Flanders Park, located north of McIntosh Lake across from Dawson Park, was built in 1995 and gets its' name from 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 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; an historic marker identifies a remnant of the milk house.

Flanders Park features a multiple-use court suitable for both roller hockey and basketball, a playground and a shelter. Xeriscape landscaping showcases hardy and native plants along the pathways, which offer spectacular views of McIntosh Lake and the mountains to the west.

McIntosh Lake District Park and greenway trail connects Flanders Park to Dawson park and also to the Agricultural Heritage Center at Lohr-McIntosh Farm (managed by Boulder County Parks and Open Space). This 7 acre park is accessed from a parking lot off North Shore Drive.
