Jim Hamm Park


A city park that residents and police said became a gathering spot for “casual encounters” between gay and bisexual men has seen little activity since police stepped up patrols there, officers said.

While there is no conclusive evidence that Jim Hamm Nature Area at 17th Avenue and County Line Road was actually being frequented by men seeking casual sex, residents of the nearby Sundance neighborhood said that’s what was happening.

In April, city firefighters and parks workers burned off the underbrush in an attempt to reduce the number of places where people could meet up unseen and to improve wildlife habitat.

Police said they’ve seen no recent evidence of sexual encounters or heard complaints from residents.

“Jim Hamm Park has been very quiet, with little activity occurring over the last couple of months,” said Longmont Police Cmdr. Craig Earhart.
