1. Explore all the Waneka Lake Park has to offer

Waneka Lake Park is an expansive recreational and wildlife refuge home to playgrounds, biking trails, picnics areas, soccer fields, canoes, bird-watching and more! You can rent a canoe or a paddleboat through the Waneka Lake Boathouse, or rent a park shelter for special events.

2. Experience a new kind of dining at Community

Community encourages people to socialize with family-style dining at cafeteria-style tables that you share with others. Community hopes that you utilize the opportunity to share with others both literally with your food, but also share in conversation with others in the community. The restaurant was created by locals, for locals, with Colorado comfort food from local farms.

3. Interact at the WOW! Children’s Musuem

The WOW! Children’s museum is an interactive museum that encourages children to learn while they are playing. Exhibits are tactile and sensory, and have a wide range of appeal. There is an art space, dance studio, market, bank, and more, all designed for children to better understand the world around them. The museum is often packed on the weekends, so it’s best to go during the week.
