Colorado Parks and Wildlife and El Paso County Parks are co-sponsoring a day in the beautiful outdoors to introduce the public to the fishing improvements at Homestead Ranch Regional Park from 10 a.m. to 2 p.m., June 8. There will be free fishing poles for the first 150 kids.
Come one, come all to enjoy an educational and fun special event to celebrate the Grand Re-Opening of Homestead Ranch Regional Park, which is located just north of Peyton in eastern El Paso County.
The pond is stocked with small bass and bluegills, which are perfect for teaching kids to fish.
Activities include educational stations for casting, fishing ethics, fish anatomy, knot tying, archery, and a .22caliber shooting station. There is no cost, so come discover this awesome El Paso County Park.
Trails and Open Spaces will teach “Share the Trail” ethics and Matt Morgan of the Colorado Geological Survey will lead a hike to the rim and talk about rocks and the unique formations at the park.
Homestead Ranch Regional Park is located at 16444 Gollihar Road. Take U.S. Highway 24 to Elbert Road north, go east on Sweet Road to Gollihar north.
