After a day of walking the town shopping, dining, visiting museums, the Kit Carson Park is a nice place to walk to and relax. Sit, listen to the birds, people watch, relax. We take a stroll in the park whenever we are in Taos.

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.
