Trails in The Field Open Space
Trails in The Field Now Open

The Field Open Space is located north of the City and County Building, east of Main Street, and south of 10th Avenue. Several trails in the vicinity of Brunner Farmhouse and the 10th Avenue Pond at the Field have been closed to minimize any conflicts with a coyote family that is raising its pups in this area.

Broomfield and Colorado Parks and Wildlife staff have been monitoring the area, and feel that the trails should be reopened. The trails have reopened as of August 1. 

Remember, to avoid coyote conflicts, citizens should continue to practice these coexistence tips:
  • Abide by the leash law, and keep pets on a leash no longer than six feet. 
  • Use low-intensity hazing when coyotes get too close. This type of hazing includes yelling, use of noisemakers, and the throwing of small objects like a handful of pebbles in a manner not intended to cause harm to the animal to keep the coyote fearful of humans. 
  • Do not feed coyotes.
  • Avoid walking at dusk and dawn when coyotes can be more active.
  • Adjust your walking routes frequently to avoid predictable patterns, especially if walking a pet.
  • Pick up small pets if confronted by a coyote.
  • Never allow your pet to “play” with coyotes.

Broomfield staff continues to communicate with Colorado Parks and Wildlife on this matter. Please see Broomfield’s Coexistence with Wildlife Policy and additional information on coyotes.
