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.

Shady, sunny, grassy, rocky, mixed! Whatever blows your hair back you should find it in this park. Not too much water though. Nice view point at Grand Outlook too. Large area of yuccas. Good views of Pikes peak and Front Range.

Drive up to one of the overlooks for a panoramic view of the city. Great playground for families with grade school and younger children--take a picnic.

Great trails, do find it easy to get lost in the park or lose the trail so make sure you have good hikers on. Warm days bring water and a snack. Wonderful rocks and stones to see. Doesn't feel like you are in the middle of a town. You can bike, walk, run thru the park. Many parking lots to... More

I'd never visited this area before - almost never noticed it. Very quiet, very nice. I'll be hiking these trails again!
