Located at Boardwalk Park, 100 N. 5th Street, Windsor, CO. Take a walk around the Windsor Lake Trail which surrounds the perimeter of the lake. The trail is 2.25 miles around.

The Windsor Lake offers many opportunities for recreational activities including:

Ingestion of untreated agricultural water such as Windsor Lake carries an inherent risk of possible exposure to pathogenic organisms.  Individuals who have been ill are asked to refrain from entering the water.

Algae may be present.

Swim diapers are requested for use with young children and are available at the concession stand.

 Conclusion
 5/23/13  5/100mL  22/100mL The lakewater sample DOES NOT exceed the Fecal Coliform limit of 200 colonies per 100mL
(Set by the CDPHE) and therefore is safe for public swimming.
 5/29/13  6/100mL  13/100mL The lakewater sample DOES NOT exceed the Fecal Coliform limit of 200 colonies per 100mL
(Set by the CDPHE) and therefore is safe for public swimming.
 6/4/13  12/100mL  12/100mL The water sample has tested POSITIVE for Fecal Coliform and E.coli bacteria but does NOT
exceed the 200cfu/100mL limit set by the CDPHE.
 6/11/13  1/100mL  1/100mL The water sample has tested POSITIVE for Fecal Coliform and E.coli bacteria but does NOT
