One of the coolest things about Fort Collins is all the open space, parks and trails in the vicinity. It'll be fun to see how the city puts the 5 acres they were just granted to use.

This act of generosity came from a local developer by the name Byron Collins. The 5-acre piece of land is along the Power Trail and the east side of Southridge Golf Course.

“Generosity comes in many forms, and this donation of real estate is a permanent investment in our community," said Darin Atteberry, Fort Collins city manager. “Byron’s gift truly enhances the City’s ability to effectively steward our residents’ well-being and quality of life.”
