Greenbriar Park, located at the Willox Lane and Bramblebush Street in northern Fort Collins, is a 22-acre neighborhood park that was established in 1993. The spacious park is great for sports, with two ball fields on Bramblebush, large flat grassy areas for soccer and rugby games, a basketball court, a tennis court, picnic pavilions, restrooms (open summer only), and a good playground for kids. Greenbriar is the practice and home game field for the Northern Colorado Rugby Club Flamingos, part of Rocky Mountain Rugby’s Eastern Rockies Rugby Football Union. A small lake is in the middle of the park. The park also has a mile of paved walking trails. Large parking lots are on the north and east sides of Greenbriar.

Pro Tips

  • Want to do a fitness walk? Greenbriar Park offers over a mile of paved trail to get a workout. Start at the north parking lot on Bramblebush Street and make an 0.54-mile loop around the west side of the park or do a 0.55-mile loop around the east side.
  • The Northern Colorado Rugby Club Flamingos is a tough group of guys with a kind of a sissy name. Check out the Flamingos by attending one of their games at Greenbriar Park with in the Eastern Rockies Rugby Football Union with teams from Denver, Colorado Springs, Greeley, and Glenwood Springs. The team usually practices on Tuesday and Thursday evenings. For more info, visit their website at nocorugby.com.
  • Redwing Marsh Natural Area is west of Greenbriar Park on the west side of Willox Lane. The wetlands area has a 0.2-mile trail or can be seen from a paved sidewalk around its perimeter. Summer is the best time to visit it since lots of birds enjoy the area, including its namesake redwing blackbirds. Occasional education activities and events are held at the area in summer.
  • Recommended season(s): Year-round.
