Red Feather Lakes Community Park is the recipient of a Larimer County Small Grant Program grant in the amount of $1,864. “We’re so appreciative of the county,” park coordinator Eunice Michalka said. “It will allow us to purchase materials to enhance the walking trail in thew park and the area near the Veterans’ Memorial Monument with native shrubs and crushed asphalt for the trails. Grant funds will also be used to purchase picnic tables.”
RFL Community Park is sponsored and maintained by the Mountain Lions Club of Red Feather Lakes and was established in 2006 on six acres of land leased to the park for 15 years by the Quantance/Bradley family.
Twenty-five volunteers from the Lions Club maintain the park keeping it safe for visitors, residents and school children. The Veterans’ Memorial Monument and garden area is the centerpiece of the park.
The Lions Club, active in the area since 1975, has plans to expand the monument to accommodate additional names. The club sponsors three community pancake breakfasts every summer to help support their $14,000 annual budget. Funds support the elementary school, library, volunteer fire department and eye exams and glasses.
RHL Community Park is between Hiawatha and Ramona Lakes and has views of both lakes. Wildlife is abundant in the area.
