We rode our bikes here, and really weren't sure what the point was. There were some people out gardening, which was kinda cool, and a little playground for the kiddos, but other than that, looked like a farm, And a bit of a messy farm at that. It's free, so you can check it out, but didn't really seem like it was all that.

Diane: I am so sorry that you did not enjoy the Rio Grande Farm Park. We are a teaching farm. We work with local new and aspiring farmers to help them build businesses through organic vegetable farming. We will be building a beautiful Nature Play area in the new future, as we recently were funded to do so by the Colorado Health Foundation. Next time you want to come out we will take you on a tour. We have bees, and an orchard and will be growing pumpkins. We will have housing for artists and art. Additionally, this not for profit and community supported Park has many other BIG plans for the future and would love to share them with you. My phone number is 719-580-0379. Please feel free to call to get the whole tour.

On a cloudy day stopped by on hgwy 17 across from Loaf n Jug.Very good place to explain to children how our food is grown.Many different varieties seen from various squash,corn,tomatoes.With so many city dwellers unable to have a garden.Benches and a picnic table under trees and a fun playground for children.Plenty of parking.
You might want to walk across The Rio Grande River on the bridge to Cole Park directly across the river.Many more trails and trees.Til the end of summer every Sunday at 6:30p a concert is presented of local artists.Also can be accessed via State st. You can park and walk to the Farm Park .

We are super happy that you enjoyed your time at the Park! Please join us for our annual Harvest Festival usually the 2nd weekend in September. We have amazing opportunities for young folks including a petting zoo, hay rides, and art activities. Additionally, there is live local music, local food and local art!

We are excited to know that you enjoyed your walk along the Rio Grande! The Farm Park is just one of the many jewels along its banks. Thank you for the lovely review.

Excellent RV park during a very crowded Memorial Day weekend
May 2017 • Family
Very nice spaces,super easy to find and excellent access into and exiting from our spot. The store/office people were very congenial and helpful with good recommendations on sources of food and supplies. Alamosa easily held our grandkids attention and great attractions that all delivered in spades throughout our 5 days there. We could have easily spent 7-10 days there with Alamosa as the epicenter for multiple day trips.of special note was, of course, the Great sand dunes National Park( we went there twice-once to scope it out for the visitors center and a second time earlier in the day with rented sand surf boards when it was a little cooler). We were lucky on this trip tab there was a lot more snow melt in the late Spring so Medano creek, that runs right on front of the dune fields was flowing strongly so our grandkids(14 & 12) spent a good hour in those waves and rapids after we had gotten our fill of climbing up and surfing down the big dunes-go at least 3 rows into the dune field where you get get longer and steeper rides. The second best attraction was the Colorado Gator farm- a tourist attraction that really lives up to its hype! Again, we spent about 3 hours going thru all the animal exhibit, taking photos with and holding baby alligators and huge turtles. We also were very impressed with their farming of Tilapia in huge open tanks that we were able to feed.

We are excited that you had a wonderful stay in Alamosa. Though the Rio Grande Farm Park is not an RV Park. You must of stayed at another place. We don't have a front office, just a wonderful farm, orchard and old fashioned playground. Maybe this review belongs to another place?
