From the beginning, parks have been integral to Colorado Springs. Our parks system includes more than 9,000 acres of parkland and 500 acres of trails. To celebrate this amazing feature of our city, the Colorado Springs Pioneers Museum is launching a new section of the Story of Us exhibit. You can help by sending your stories and photos of our favorite park!

The museum is asking for photographs and stories from the community, and are especially in need of materials from the following parks and open spaces:
  • Broadmoor Glen
  • Candleflower Park
  • Glen Oaks Park
  • Grey Hawks Park
  • High Chapparal Open Space
  • Meadowridge Park
  • Oak Meadows Park
  • Oak Valley Ranch Park
  • Silent Rain
  • Sky View Park
  • Springs Ranch Park
  • Sunset Mesa
  • Wickes Park
  • Woodland Hills Park

You can submit your stories and photos to Hillary Mannion, Colorado Springs Pioneers Museum Archivist:
