Dawson Park - 1757 Harvard St.
Dawson Park borders McIntosh Lake on the northwest side of Longmont. It was
named in 1973, after John Dawson (1839-1917), and developed in 1981. Dawson
joined the Chicago-Colorado Colony in 1871, and farmed east of Hygiene. The
lake was called Dawson before taking the name McIntosh. With commanding views
of the mountains, this 12.9 acre park offers shoreline fishing, tennis, and
a restful walking trail system. Dawson Park now adjoins the McIntosh Lake District
park which links it to Flanders Park and Boulder County's Lohr Open Space.
Art in Public Places has installed Dawson Silverwood, by Steve Jensen in 2003 within this park site.
