All viewing area's were nice, but lot #16 had a great view of sunset over the mountain tops. It has a great dog park area as well. The one thing I did not like was some cars had their radios blaring loud music and it made for a less enjoyable time in viewing the scenery.

Okay, I love the fact that we have such a large park in the middle of the city, but the trails here are not particularly well maintained and are horribly marked. I've run, hiked, and dog-walked thru here a few times a year for the last 4 years and I still get lost. Plus, you have to be very careful... More

I love stopping by this place with family and friends. Breathtaking views...great for sunrise or sunset. The playground off of Maizeland is great for kids! We stop there on our way out!

I have been hiking here since I was a kid, it's not a place to hike around at night. During the day however it is a ton of fun. Have to remind yourself while you are on the trail that you are still in the city.

Very convenient park in the middle of Colorado Springs, CO. Beautiful scenery and great bike and walking trails, and the view from the overlook is fantastic. Very nice picnic areas as well. Well worth a visit, and it's free of charge!

Loads of trails and great view points. A great place to go on trails with your dog. It has many hidden away spots and is a Springs treasure not generally advertised to tourists.

Palmer Park has a lovely playground near the entrance. There's a dog park where dogs can run around off leash in an enclosed area. There's picnic areas, bike trails, and hiking trails. A short drive followed by a short walk takes you to a gorgeous overlook where you can see Pikes Peak with Garden of the Gods at its base.... More

We go here 3-5 times a week. Many trails throughout and can take as long as a day without exploring them all. Can be easy to semi-agressive, and terrific mountain biking. But our favorite is the over 4 miles of off-leash trail at the top

While we were in Colorado Springs visiting relatives they wanted to make sure to show us this park. We didn't have time to hike the trails but it was still a very nice place to stop by. When we got to some of the lookouts we could see, but not hear, most of Colorado Springs. It was kind of surreal... More

This Central-Park-sized park is right in the geographical center of CO Springs, its most rugged park. You could get lost in this park! It features many stone pillars with "tabletops" of rock atop them. Eerie looking. There are many trails. When my dog was alive, Gracie Alley Oop and I hiked this park every which way, even in the winter,... More
