Lunch spot

We love going to Palmer Park when we visit our son. We usually bring a lunch and enjoy the view. Lots of good mountain biking and road biking, hiking too.

My grandchildren must have been on my phone. I was asked by TripAdvisor to finish my rating. Didn't start rating. Haven't visited. Plan to this coming weekend. So sorry!

Lived by this park growing up in Colorado Springs. We hiked, rock climbed and biked here everyday after school. This is a beautiful park and I visit it every time I'm back in town. Beautiful drive through the park.

This is a multi-use park. I have hiked the trails and played Volleyball on the sand courts. It is almost like being in the mountains right in the middle of Colorado Springs. Very nice place right off Academy Blvd.

We hike here regularly. Always enjoy as the rock climbing is easy for children, interesting rocks & beautiful views. Trails are easy & different lengths for amount of time you have.

Whether you hike in this park, bike in the park, or drive through this park you will be amazed. It is leaves you feeling like you are in the mountains away from the city. The views are just majestic in some points. You, and your family will love it.

All viewing area's were nice, but lot #16 had a great view of sunset over the mountain tops. It has a great dog park area as well. The one thing I did not like was some cars had their radios blaring loud music and it made for a less enjoyable time in viewing the scenery.

Okay, I love the fact that we have such a large park in the middle of the city, but the trails here are not particularly well maintained and are horribly marked. I've run, hiked, and dog-walked thru here a few times a year for the last 4 years and I still get lost. Plus, you have to be very careful... More

I love stopping by this place with family and friends. Breathtaking views...great for sunrise or sunset. The playground off of Maizeland is great for kids! We stop there on our way out!

I have been hiking here since I was a kid, it's not a place to hike around at night. During the day however it is a ton of fun. Have to remind yourself while you are on the trail that you are still in the city.
