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.

My husband had been reading up on Kit Carson and we found this museum small but very interesting. The staff were very well informed. Worth a visit.

The park has lots of green space divided up into different areas so that it can be more and less pulbic or private depending upon what you need or want. Volleyball courts. A very historic and old cemetary including Kit Carson and other important historic figures. Easy to walk around and scenic area in the park with or without your... More

I walk the dogs daily here. Since Taos is dog- friendly there are many kindred spirits with their dogs. The park is family friendly with softball leagues for the kids. There is also volleyball, picnic areas, a stage, the interesting Kit Carson cemetery. You'll find arts & craft shows, antique car shows etc.
