Our main goal was to bike the trails they have, but they were not marked according to help us figure out if we were going the correct way. This park is perfect for hiking and walking the dog. The views of pikes peak and other surrounding areas was amazing.

in the bosom of nature and so close to town. This is a must visit for serene views and sounds. If you want your soul healed after a frustrating day, this is the place to come

VERY easy and laid-back hike trails. Beautiful place, especially to see Colorado nature. It's not overcrowded, but you will see plenty of people on good days.

The park is a good place to show the 'out-of-towners' a scenic summary of the west side of Colorado Springs. From the Waldo Canyon Fire scar to the Garden of the Gods to NORAD and the Will Rogers Shrine, all can be seen... Not to forget Pikes Peak

Great trails, however the people are a little bit on the eccentric side. Go during the day and you can really get a good feel for the park.

First and foremost, I love Palmer Park because it's one of the few locations in Colorado Springs where pets are allowed off-leash on some of the hiking trails. Yes, people let their pets off leash all the time throughout the city, but you aren't supposed to except for in specified locations. The Yucca Trail at the top of the hill... More

This is a little dry oasis in the middle of Colorado Springs. It is very well laid out and has all of the amenities you could want. Places to ride bikes, baseball fields, volleyball courts, etc. My main reason to go there is it is a designated dog park. My dog loves it there and we go several times a... More
