Blue Skies is an 11 acre park which was designed around a flight timeline with themed images found throughout the park. The name Blue Skies is a common airline pilot phrase and was suggested for a park name since the Longmont Municipal Airport is nearby. Interpretive signage, sandblasted images and other features throughout the park represent historic planes and images that walk visitors through the timeline of flight. The skate park and the playground also compliment the theme with features that represent elements of the Amelia Earhart plane and a rocket ship climber in the playground.
Blue Skies Park is located along Dry Creek #1 in southwestern Longmont and offers a trail connection to the Dry Creek #1 Greenway. Blue Mountain Elementary School is north of the park.
