Curt Gowdy State Park
1351 Hynds Lodge Rd
Cheyenne, WY 82009
Head out to the Curt Gowdy State Park, located in-between Cheyenne and Laramie, for a beautiful mountain retreat. Get back in harmony with Mother Nature in this 3,400-acre park and reservoir; this nature preserve is bounding with all sorts of plant and wildlife, as well as an “Epic” trail system, granite outcroppings (perfect for climbing), and aquatic and outdoor activities.
Dry Creek Parkway
Get active outdoors along the Dry Creek Parkway, a wide but linear park with an expansive bike trail and disc golf (also known as Frisbee golf) course. Like the Greater Cheyenne Greenway, this park’s trails are expanding and growing in popularity. Walk, play and explore the area following the creek, which forms a few lakes and ponds along the way.
Greater Cheyenne Greenway
Connecting the city together is the amazing Greater Cheyenne Greenway. More than just a 32-mile-long sidewalk, this 10-foot-wide reinforced concrete path is a monumental achievement and a key component in Cheyenne’s non-motorized transportation system. Walk, run, jog, bike or even skate through neighborhoods, parks and urban centers on this highly accessible outdoor path system.
9th St at Morrie Ave
Cheyenne, WY 82001
Another popular community park, Holliday Park offers a wide array of activities for people of all ages who love the outdoors, especially families. Stop by the art center for fun projects; play at the basketball, volleyball or tennis courts; try your hand at the horseshoe pits; bike along the trails; stroll along the park; and much, much more!
Lincoln Park is a wonderful example of Cheyenne’s smaller neighborhood parks. Although not as large as the community or state parks, this little park still brings quite a bit of great outdoors to the city-dwellers. Enjoy the greenery of the park at one of the picnic areas, play a game of basketball on the public court, let the children have fun in their play area and cool down in the summer at Johnson Pool.
Cheyenne is filled with small community and neighborhood parks. Lions Park, however, offers more to visitors than simply a grassy area. You can find just about anything a fan of the great outdoors could desire in this city park, including a lake, a beach, boating and fishing opportunities, playgrounds, mini golf, an indoor swimming pool and even the Cheyenne Botanic Gardens.
