I felt we were stepping back in time to visit the gravesites of the history makers laid to rest here. It is not huge so a half hour is about all that is needed. It is free -- just walk in and explore.

We didn't spend too much time there. We were just looking at some of the leaves changing. As far as recommending that you go to this park, I would say there are a lot of other things to do and see in Taos if you're just visiting like we were. But it's a park where you could take the kids if you want to let them run a bit.

We attended the Wool Festival that was in the park for the weekend. The Festival was fabulous and the park is a lovely venue.

This is a very pleasant park and contains a cemetary where Kit Carson and many of his family are buried. Visit the nearby Kit Carson home and museum afterward.

The excellently located park had a great playground landscaped with squishy, tiny, ground up tire material appreciated by this mom. It was like walking on bouncy sand. There was a single chair-like swing made to accommodate children in a wheelchair. The modern play ground had several slides and swings. My kids had a blast! The park also consisted of multiple trails around the baseball fields, historic cemetery (you could bypass if you didn't want to enter), stage/park. There were many people making use of the trails. Also there was a Tai Chi class was being held in the park. TIP: Take water.
