Where is Palmer Park?
Palmer Park is located in the north portion of Colorado Springs about 5 minutes east of I-25.
Real Estate near Palmer Park is currently in high demand. With few listings on the market, sellers have the advantage when selling there home as there are plenty of buyers yet not much of an inventory. If the price is right homes in this area will not stay on the market long.
While the park does have specific areas dedicated to letting your dog off leash it is important to keep your dog on a leash around the rest of the park. Migratory songbirds nest on the ground in grasslands around the park and all it takes is one dog off leash to kill an entire nest of birds.
The above photo is taken from the Grandview Overlook which is one of the easiest access points in the Park as you can drive right up to a parking lot that is a short walk to the overlook. This is a popular spot to capture photos of our incredible city and the grandeur of Pikes Peak looking down on the city.
