Izaak Walton Nature Area & Clubhouse


View Map

Izaak Walton Nature Area was donated to City of Longmont in 1989 by the V.V. Golden Foundation. Used for nearly half a century by the Izaak Walton League for sport fishing and skeet-shooting, this facility sat unimproved until 1999. The nature area features native vegetation, wildlife habitat enhancements and passive recreational activities. The site is 21.5 acres in size which includes a 15.7-acre pond. The nature area is also a trail head along the St. Vrain Greenway. "Gather Enough People Here" is a mechanical art piece installed by Robert Tully in 1999, and is found at the southwestern corner of the pond. The pond was dedicated as a youth fishing pond. The 15.7 acre pond is managed as a recreational fishery for the exclusive use of children (parents are encouraged to help).
