Fountain Creek Regional Park is a 460-acre linear park situated along Fountain Creek between the cities of Colorado Springs and Fountain.  The park includes a creek-side trail, Willow Springs Ponds, Hanson Nature Park. and the Fountain Creek Nature Center.  The ponds are stocked on a regular basis, and fishing is allowed in the Willow Springs Ponds.

Downstream of the ponds, the 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.
