Palmer Park is a local favorite because, without driving very far at all, you are in the midst of hundreds of acres of gorgeous and remote-feeling wilderness! The view from Grandview is unparalleled of the city with Pike's Peak in the background. Dozens of hiking and biking trails take you throughout the park. Or you can drive through the park as well if you have physical limitations. Named after General Palmer himself, the founder of Colorado Springs, this park helps you understand why our city makes sure there is a park within walking distance of every neighborhood throughout the entire city.

The roads in this park are narrow and steep. We were involved in a minor accident while in the park. Met a car in in hairpin curve and hit head on. The overlook at the top of the park is beautiful, you can see the entire city as well as the mountain ranges in the distance. Worth going.

If you want to to take hikes of varying difficulty (easy to modest) that range in time from 40 minutes to 3hours, this is an excellent place to go. The trails are widely used by locals and we try to go at least once a week, weather permitting.

The park is clean and nice. The equipment seems well cared for and there is a lot of area for the kids. The bathrooms are on the complete other end of the spectrum. They are dirty and they men's room had no stall door or lock for the main door. That is not good for a public place with a lot of kids.
