Proudly Serving Cimarron Hills, Colorado
Best Green Places: Palmer Park
Though officially in Colorado Springs, Palmer Park is close enough to the Cimarron Hills area to be a popular destination for the many residents in this area. At 730 acres, Palmer Park is just slightly smaller than New York City’s Central Park, yet like Central Park, it is a suburban park, entirely enclosed by the city. The Park sits at a high elevation (approximately 6,610 feet at its highest point), offering visitors scenic views of downtown Colorado Spring and even Pikes Peak, which is one of many long distance vistas visible from within the Park.
The Park itself boasts over 25 miles of trails, primarily for hiking, trail riding and equestrian uses, while having only one paved roadway for vehicle uses that meanders through Palmer Park. As a result, the majority of the Park can only be accessed by trail. The Park also has many picnic areas, a community playground, a horse stable, and several multi-use athletic fields including baseball/softball diamonds, volleyball courts and soccer fields. The Park also contain a dog park and an off leash dog area.
Though a developed suburban park, much of the Park is left in a relatively undisturbed natural state – making it a favorite for visitors. Huge sandstone bluffs can be found throughout the Park, with small canyons found between the bluffs. Ponderosa Pine and Douglas Fir dot the landscape, along with scrub oak, cactus and yucca. Animal wildlife is varied, and includes deer, coyotes, foxes, snakes, lizards and even an occasional bear. Eagles and hawks often soar above Park, with owls being commonly heard birds at night within the park grounds.
