Blue Skies Park

overview

View Map

This eleven acre park was designed around a flight timeline with themed images found throughout the park. The name Blue Skies is a common airline pilot phrase and was suggested for a park name since the Longmont Municipal Airport is nearby. Designed by Winston Associates in 2004-2005, the park was constructed by ECI Site Construction Management in 2005-2006. The park was opened to the public in 2006. Find the interpretive sign near the parking lot and playground. The pterodactyl plaza (early in time) with boulder "eggs" - is found at the east end of the park. Travel through time as you walk west. Sandblasted images in stone pavers include: a meadowlark, dragonfly and monarch butterfly, a Chinese dragon, Leonardo Da Vinci's flying machines and unique signature, the Wright Brothers bi-plane, Amelia Earhart's plane and a sci-fi rocket. Also found are gardens developed around the Bird and Butterfly and Da Vinci images, and a skate park created to resemble some of the elements of the Amelia Earhart plane, X-15 and 747 plazas and a rocket ship climber in the playground.
