Lake Loveland (subject of the 1950's Guy Lombardo hit "there's a Lovely Lake in Loveland"), was created in 1893 out of a swampy depression known as Hays Lake.
Today, Lake Loveland remains the 'gem' of the town -- the center of activity and pleasure for all of Loveland and its visitors.
The South Shore offers fishing and a beautiful view of the Rocky Mountains. North Lake Park borders the lake's north side and features a swim beach, fishing, park with train, playgrounds, tennis courts, raquetball courts, basketball courts, picnicking, softball fields, an ampitheater, and general outdoor fun.
The famous Benson Sculpture Park is located just north of North Lake Park and offers over a hundred sculptures in a beautiful outdoor setting.
