Garden of the Gods in Colorado Springs is the breathtaking park founded by railroad pioneer Charles Elliot Perkins. The free park has enough to keep visitors of all ages busy for at least a day. Ample recreation options include biking, hiking, rock climbing, and horseback riding. Explore the park on your own, join a bus tour, visit the nature center or join a free nature talk or guided walk. Take a picnic lunch or dine at the park’s café – complete with panoramic views and outdoor seating options.

Before you visit check for special annual events such as Bighorn Sheep Day (free family fun and educational activities), Earth Day celebrations, running races and a nighttime bike ride, the Starlight Spectacular. No matter when you visit, do not forget your camera. Garden of the Gods is a photographer’s paradise and you will want to share the beautiful scenery with everyone at home.
