Recreation & Culture

Woman Running Register for Recreation ClassesTake off running down one of Longmont's greenways until you can feel your heart beating. Go on a evening stroll with the geese at McIntosh Lake. Or just find a nice, flat rock by the St. Vrain River to sit on, listen to the water and the birds and smile. With over 300 days of sunshine each year, Longmont is a great place for outdoor enthusiasts. The City of Longmont maintains over 1500 acres of parks and open space, and Boulder County maintains over 80 miles of trails for hiking, biking, horseback riding, and nature photography. Longmont also sits at the base of the Rocky Mountains, within driving distance of 29 ski areas.
