When you are living in Colorado Springs, one of the first things you come to appreciate is that Colorado Springs has some really great parks. Among them is Palmer Park, located in the center of the city. Saturday (actually the whole weekend) the weather was so nice and mild (50’s) I had to get out and do a little light duty hiking, so Palmer Park was the place. This is a park with something for everybody, from a well equipped kids playground on the south side of the park, to a seemingly limitless selection of hiking and biking trails. The views from the top of this mesa in the middle of town are really amazing.
The following slideshow includes various shots either of Palmer Park, or taken from Palmer Park.
