Went to this park for the first time for a work office BBQ. Wasn't the greatest park, looked kind of sketchy. Much better parks to visit or take your family to.

As you drive up the hill, there are different areas to pull off and park while hiking. Interesting scenery...had to cut them hike short as it started to rain heavily. We'd go back if we had a chance.

Great trails for hiking around. Also a great play area for kids. Have used dog park in the past too which is nice as well - just been awhile. A true gem in the middle of the city.

A great park in the middle of Colorado Springs. An easy hike is the Grandview Trail. Great view from accessible to all at parking lot at trail head. Tables and chairs to sit and relax.

Palmer park.... what a nice little park in the middle of suburbia! It was the most beautiful day out when we arrived. A sky threatening a massive down pour. It spared us the rain for our visit but it was very overcast so it didnt make for great pictures but it was beautiful nonetheless. There's plenty of trails varying in... More

A park right in the heart of Colorado Springs that is like Central Park in NYC. They have horse stables and have regular horse rides on the trails. It is a great place to hike with your dogs - but beware of rattlesnakes sunning themselves on the walkway. You are in the West. A great place for a picnic.

If you want to get out of town, yet stay local, visit this park, with its many paths and trails one can walk, hike, or bike. The mesa which it sits on gives an awesome view off the city. The park closes at 9pm, and does offer a dig park as well for those with pets.

Palmer Park has multiple length hikes from 1 miles to about 6 miles where you can enjoy being in a park like setting. You can see interesting rock formations. If you hike or drive to the overlook, you have a clear view of downtown Colorado Springs and Pikes Peak. This is a small playground with restrooms and a fenced in... More

This is the perfect Park to see all of Colorado Springs. Pikes Peak, Garden of the Gods and downtown Colorado Springs can be seen. I definitely want to use the trails next time. Only complaint was noisy pollution from cars blaring music. Very clean Park.
