Department Mission - To serve residents of Colorado Springs with integrity, through competent provision and management of trails, open spaces, parks and recreation areas; cultural and historical resources; urban forests; recreation opportunities for youth, teens, adults and seniors; and services that provide for or improve the quality of life and enhance the image of the city.
Colorado Springs is stronger, more vibrant and more resilient because of parks and recreation services and we’re excited to show it during National Parks and Recreation Month 2022. We’ve planned a variety of activities for residents of all ages and abilities to help celebrate!
Volunteer opportunities in our parks system abound. Whether it is a one-time service project or a long-term volunteer position, there are many ways to get involved.
Several options for swimming and splashing open over Memorial Day weekend. From fountains and spray grounds to outdoor pools and lakes, there are many opportunities for summer fun!
