It's pretty but every time we go it smells someone has been smoking out in the area recently. Does not matter where in the park we go or what time of year we go, and yes we've been there several times over the last two...More

This park is great for the views of the Front Range and Pikes Peak. The hiking trails are well marked and safe to use. There are also picnic facilities.

There's a lot of places to hike around Palmer Park, however there's also places you can park and just look at the view.

The park sits on a plateau so there is a view of Colorado Springs and mountains. It's free. The trail we took was flat and easy. Many people with dogs.

Great hiking trails. It's a great place to walk a dog on leash. The views of the city are very nice. The park is safe and there is no admission fee.

I have visited Palmer Park a few times and find a different trail each visit to take in another overview of gorgeous Colorado Springs. Great place to watch the balloon festival or AF Academy skydivers etc. Don't forget to take your camera or smartphone.

The park for the locals -- not the public (you probaby can't find the entrance). Plain, simple, unspoiled plateau overlooking the city and the mountains. For GENUINE low-key nature-lovers ONLY. Not really for tourists. NO facilities. Curfew.
