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:

*Dogs must be leashed at all times except at the Dog Park located on the north side of Windsor Lake.
*Swimming is permitted within the designated Swim Beach Area ONLY marked by ropes and buoys.
*Swim diapers are requested for use with young children and are available at the concession stand.

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.
