“Love this park!”
Reviewed 26 February 2014

I like to hike in this park. When I first started hiking there it was me and my puppy. Now, fifteen years later, I have a family with young kids and a new dog :) There is a cool playground for kids, a dog park, mountain biking, hiking, yoga in the park, sightseeing, and occasional events. It's in the heart of town but I feel like I am up in the mountains when I hike around. Hikes can be tailored to how much time you have once you get to know the trails.

“My favorite place to go hiking in the city!”
Reviewed 16 February 2014

It is an awesome place to hike to right in the middle of the city. You can get away from it all in a few minutes! Love!

“Palmer Park, close in on the East side.”
Reviewed 26 November 2013

There is little to but off-road fat tire bike, or view the city from a high vantage point. You time may be better spent at the Air Force Academy.

“Secret gem in middle of the city”
Reviewed 25 November 2013

If you mountain bike don't miss this one. Hosted 24 hours of Colorado MB race twice. Nice open areas, dog park, trails, rocks for kids to scramble on. Free as are all city parks. You won't believe you are in the middle of the city.
