Full of welded art and really creative and also free! Fun for all ages to do late in the day. This is a great place to take fun photos of the family. Do the walk slowly as there are great details you will miss if you rush! Loved it! Afterwards, head West on Harmony toward the Mountains to eat at a number of great restaurants! Ft. Collins has it all!
The Swetsville Zoo will captivate the young and the old. The young will enjoy the variety, size and character of each piece. The middle will enjoy the added humor that a more experienced mind can wrap around. The older will recognize many of the parts and pieces that are used to make a whole new creation.
The only guide is the laminated paper at the trails entrance so you can take your time and enjoy. The entry price is also resonable...free will donations. But you'll want to help out when you see what a joy the artist must have in making these things for you to enjoy!

Wonderful collection of sculptures with a great sense of humor throughout. My favorites include the fisherman, two-headed dragon, and 'ant picnic.' With a super wal-mart currently under construction across the street, Swetsville may soon be replaced by yet another Home Depot or similar big box. Catch this gem before it's razed!

This surprising metal zoo of amazingly lifelike creatures is also laugh-out-loud funny. Rusty junk bewitched into delightful entertainment...
Peaceful woodsy paths along a big river show off a hundred metal sculptures. There's also a Swetcycles museum among other odd buildings. Open and relaxed, few parking spots so it can't get too crowded...
Bill Swet was still happily working when we dropped by last summer.
I went there when I was a little girl. Loved it. Went there 15 years later and still love it. THis guy is awesome. Recycled trash is radical and looking at it could entertain me for hours. It's worth the drive!
