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 walked through the park to see the art fair. In the process we noticed the stage / grandstand which would be handy for a concert. Having said that, Kit Carson Park doesn’t have anything to distinguish itself from other similar parks in communities of...More
