If you like to visit the grave sites of famous people, this is a must see, since everyone's heard of Kit Carson. BTW, Dennis Hopper is buried in Taos, across town.

...with Kit Carson's name on it. Grassy area, trees. There was a wool festival there when we visited. That was very interesting. I had no idea there were so many kinds of sheep wool.

We visited the park specifically to find the cemetery where Kit Carson is resting. It was clearly marked and very accessible.

Kit Carson Park appears to be a forgotten place. It was not particularly well kept up considering the man buried here. Although PC culture and times pervade, the times this man lived in were very different and trying to force modern attitudes into the past...More

This park is utilized so often and for awesome craft shows, charity walks, music events and so on. Every time we land in Taos there is something going on. Grass areas and sidewalks to walk on all the way. Very nice place.

This is a well used local park by dog walkers daily like myself . Yoga and Tai chi classes are taught several days a week and kids from the elementary school visit often. The park is well maintained and a loop around the ball fields...More
