Beautiful Kid-friendly park in Peyton, Colorado

I have young kids, so parks and playgrounds are a big part of my life these days.  My wife and I are always on the hunt for somewhere new to take the kids for an afternoon of fun.  We came across this hidden gem by simply pulling up a Google Map near our home in Meridian Ranch.  To the Northeast of us we saw a small green square on the map labeled Homestead Ranch Regional Park.  We were pleasantly surprised after clicking on the green square.  Not only did the pictures look amazing, but it was only about a twenty-minute drive from our house.  Located in Peyton, on the edge of Black Forest, we had no idea this place  even existed! Let’s give it a try we thought.  We were not disappointed.  

Park Amenities

The park offers something for everyone.  A massive playground, a fishing pond (we did not try fishing but several people had poles in the water), a large grass field for sports, walking and horseback trails, covered picnic areas with BBQ grills, and of course, incredible views.  This park is perfect for anything from a solo hike to a large family reunion.  My kids loved the playground and walking around the pond skipping rocks along the water.  Several other families were enjoying the park as well, but it did not feel crowded at all.  This was our first visit to Homestead Ranch Regional Park, and it definitely will not be our last! 5-star rating!
