Rough and Ready Park

301 East 21st Ave
Longmont, CO 80504

This 9 acre neighborhood park is located along, and named for, the historic Rough & Ready Ditch - one of Longmont's oldest irrigation ditches. This ditch was appropriated on March 13, 1869 and formed the Pleasant Valley Reservoir (June 1871), which is now known as Terry Lake . The Rough and Ready Primary Greenway provides a pleasant trail access to the park. Found adjacent to Alpine Elementary School, the park was designed by Play Environments and built by ECI Site Construction Management. The park was opened to the public in 2006.

The elements in this park include a small skate area, basketball court, sand volleyball court, bocce ball and horseshoe courts, a multi-use play field, a walking labyrinth, a crawdad exploration area, an off-leash dog exercise area, two play bays with traditional swings and other non-traditional play equipment, an irrigation pond with a beautiful art piece titled Bird Bath by Tim Upham from Fort Collins in the pond.
