Palmer Park has tons of trails for hiking and biking both paved and unpaved. Great views of the mountains from the overlook and this year thanks to a lot of rain the wildflowers have enhanced the park. Great areas for picnics and walking the dog or taking the baby for a stroll. Lots of parking and facilities available if needed.

Palmer Park is a fabulous, peaceful park located just minutes from the activities of the city. You can find one of the best views of our city at the Look Out, or discover areas where you'll rarely see others. What a treasure we have in Palmer Park.

It was our first day in Colorado Springs, and our daughter (who lives there) thought going to the lookout would be a good activity to get us used to the altitude. That was the only part of the park that we went to, but the views were amazing.

Another great place for a hike or picnic. The view of the city and west side from the top is great also.

Went there few days ago for the first time. Moving close to there in a couple weeks will go there more often. Beautiful views of the whole city. Next time we will take our lunch up there.

Palmer Park has is small but has many running trails that make you feel like you are in the mountains. You will be sharing the trail with bikes and walkers with off leash dogs but there are so many trails you don't typically run in to a lot of crowds. We love running here in the early mornings in all... More

Great place for hiking and dog walking. Has both a fenced and open trail place for dogs, along with many trails. Beautiful views of the mountain.

This is an amazing place to go when you're in the mood to unwind. The views from the Overlook are fantastic. I try to go at least once a week, either to photograph the sunset or just to watch. It's usually pretty crowded and for good reason, but everyone is very friendly.

...Yes, well the title refers to a rumour that one shabby local was telling me (my friend and host, Mike: although let's hear him out this time!) that the Queen of Engerland gets full say over what happens to the land that makes up Palmer Park. Quite why it hasn't been renamed Queen Elizabeth the Second Park is beyond me;... More
