Great playground for children (one for super small kids and another for 5-9 year olds). Basketball court, walking trail, and plenty of open space. The park is also the burial ground for many historical Taos figures including Kit Carson. Look for Manby's grave just outside of the actual cemetery.

We have read taht it is difficult to find Kit Carson's grave. Not necessarily. Start at the Kit Carson Home and walk as directed by the museum for 2 blocks and you will be at the cemetery near the grave. Look for the US flag and it will take you straight to Kit Carson's grave. Lots of interesting, historical graves... More

Looking for a nice walk downtown Taos? Kit Carson City Public park is for you. The trail is winding around volleyball, tennis and ballparks. Paved and approximately two miles in length. Don't miss the side walk just off trail to the cemetery where you can pay respects to the Kit Carson family.

This park is in downtown Taos only a few blocks from the plaza and is a gem in this tiny town. Lots of trees and a playground for the kids. Well used but very clean and maintained

I took my 4 yr old grandson for a little downtown to play and relax after spending two days with adults. We had a blast! Play equipment was maintained and in good working order. There are a lot of trees for shade and a break from the sun. Grounds were immaculate. I give it a 10 out of 10 if... More

There was a craft show in the park the weekend we were there. So we really didn't get to enjoy just the park. But it was a nice green space.

Being tourists we went to this free park because it has the graves of local notables like Kit Carson and Mabel Dodge Lujan. Alot of activities and a bandstand. A little run down but a local gathering place just north of the center of town.

There have been some problems in the park lately. Really too bad. Kit Carson is buried here if you can find him. Loose dogs a problem. Many festival take place here.

We visited the park to see Kit Carson's and Mavel Dodge Lujan's graves. It was a beautiful day, and we enjoyed walking though the park to the small cemetary. We saw the graves after we visited the homes and museums of Carson and Lujan.

My husband and I felt uneasy walking through the park and at the cemetery during the day. That says a lot.
