Fountain Creek Regional Park is a 460-acre linear park along Fountain Creek between the cities of Colorado Springs and Fountain. Managed and maintained by El Paso County, the park includes Fountain Creek Regional Trail (connected to the Pikes Peak Greenway and part of the Front Range Trail.) The park also contains Willow Springs Ponds, and the Hanson Nature Park. The ponds are stocked on a regular basis, and fishing is allowed in the Willow Springs Ponds. Downstream of the ponds, the newly re-constructed Fountain Creek Nature Center serves as the focal point for learning about Fountain Creek, the watershed, and riparian ecology. Farther south, the Duckwood active play area consists of a 12 acre site with multi-purpose fields, picnic shelters, and a playground.
