Plenty of space to play and walk your pets. The grave yard is the history. Anyone familiar with characters of the West will recognize a number of the names on the grave stones.

We saw Michael Franti and Spearhead here. It is an excellent venue if you like good music in a lovely setting.

This is a pleasant little park, but nothing extraordinary. On the Main Street, its a nice place to sit and relax after some crazy shopping.

We stopped by Kit Carson Park, as the last time we were here was for the Mumford & Sons concert a few years back. That was our first time seeing them. They were the summer concert series and it was great. Fairly small area for...More

I walk in the park daily. During the winter months it closes at 5 p.m. The weather here it's nice for outdoor activities even during most of the winter. On colder days the bonus is fewer homeless people. If you are the nervous type then...More
