This hilltop park provides an incredible view of the Flatirons to the west, with the mountains fading to prairie grasslands to the north and south. Bring your lunch, your friends, and perhaps your binoculars – for you may catch sight of a swift raptor diving for prey.

A large part of the ecosystem around Legion Park hinges upon prairie dogs, which are a source of food for raptors, foxes, coyotes, and other quick carnivores.

As a prairie habitat, expect to see yucca, cacti, and many grasses.

Good View

Known at one time as Goodview Hill, Legion Park served as a lookout point for local Native Americans (the Arapaho, Cheyenne, Kiowa, and Comanche), as well as early Anglo settlers.

American Legion

Boulder County entered into a 99-year lease in 1932 with trustees of American Legion Post No. 10 to develop the park as a memorial to the soldiers of World War I. During the 1930s, the Civilian Conservation Corps constructed a stone wall and two WWI-era cannons.

Historical Site

Legion Park is listed on the Boulder County historical site survey. Although the American Legion removed the cannon in 2005, the wall still stands.
