Are they open every day to the public or only when they have open events? We want to go in June.

Response from JEBH_200 | Reviewed this property |
It is a city park that you can access any day (via the road on the south side or trails at Garden of the Gods.) The buildings are only open on particular days in which you must pay or be a member to be on grounds.
