This park is utilized so often and for awesome craft shows, charity walks, music events and so on. Every time we land in Taos there is something going on. Grass areas and sidewalks to walk on all the way. Very nice place.

This park has a great trail around it, with a cemetery, stage, benches, tables. and even little league fields in the back. Great for jogging, picnicking, or just walking.

Cemetery worth a look but the park as a whole was run down and had lots of dilapidated fencing. Shame really.

No. They will sell beverages there and won't allow you to bring your own to guarantee that you will pay crazy prices for water even. The lawn chair will be handy unless they over pack the event.
