Jim Hamm Pond Phase 3 Development

Jim Hamm Play Area Boulders Under Construction

The Jim Hamm Pond Nature Area, located at 17th Avenue and County Road 1, is in the final phase of development and will include all amenities noted on the 1998 Jim Hamm Pond Master Plan with some additions and modifications.

Phase 3 includes the following amenities:

  • Bird Pergola with interpretive panels
  • Bird Blind
  • Viewing area with a raised bench
  • Trail along 17th Avenue
  • Natural play area
  • Landscaping and limited irrigation

What's New?

  • The Construction Project has been awarded to Colorado Designscapes, Inc., and work is still underway.
  • FOR YOUR SAFETY - please stay off trails and out of the park throughout the construction period. Closures will occur to protect your safety.
  • Restrooms will remain closed and the south parking lot will be closed for further construction.

We hope you discover and enjoy some of Longmont's other wonderful park areas until this project is complete. We appreciate your cooperation!
