I loved the old cemetery including Kit Carson's grave, the curving walkways. I didn't like the mosquitos in the evening.

This park is large, clean and has fairly good parking. A lot of events are held here it seems and a well lighted family park.

Got to see where KIt Carson once lived. Awesome narrator. No fee. NO tip. Just watch the wildlife going in and coming out. Deer and pronghorn, turkey are everywhere.

I went to Taos for the Wool Festival which was held in Kit Carson Park. It was a great place for this event and I had a wonderful time.
