Palmer Park Reviews & Ratings
This is a wonderful park in the northern part of Colorado Springs. Lots of trails, lots of quiet nature, and great views. You can even drive around to the different parts and set up there rather than one single trail head. It's very well kept and I appreciate the maintenance. Very sad to see some tags though...
Loved walking around the park, the views were beautiful and just feeling the peace and quiet was refreshing. Great for hiking, running, or just strolling. I think they have some wild animals that track through from time to time but I haven't seen any. I would recommend.
Nice playground with shaded tables. Could use better water fountains for filling up bottles. Some of the slides were closed and the equipment got really really hot in the sun. The hiking trails are nice and pretty long. Overall a nice park.
Nice park with a good trail system for running. Several parking lots throughout the park and pretty clean overall. Caution to run or hike in pairs, especially after dark. Some interesting characters like to use the park for different activities....The dog park is small but fairly clean as well. Bags and trash cans available for dog waste.
A little slice of natural colorado. There are many things available to families or individuals. Such as hiking, biking, playgrounds, pavilions, picnic benches, even a dog park. Fun for everyone. Very scenic.
