Did You Know:
This rural, historical site is registered as a State and Local Historic Landmark.
Tour guides offer insights into the architecture and construction of the buildings as well as the engineering of the turbines, pumps, and filter system.
The Water Works is on 23 acres, and one of its many fine surprises is that it has a small apple orchard with vintage apple varieties.
Another stunner is Larimer County's second-largest cottonwood tree, which stands sentry at the entrance to the property.
The Water Works makes a great stop during a bike ride, and bike racks are provided.
See You at the Water Works This Saturday!
