Austin Bluffs Open Space Master Plan

Share this page:

The City of Colorado Springs Parks, Recreation and Cultural Services has hired THK Associates, Inc. to lead the Austin Bluffs Open Space Master and Management Plan process. Austin Bluffs Open Space consists of three unique properties – Pulpit Rock Regional Park, University Park Open Space and the original Austin Bluffs Open Space. Collectively they make up approximately 600 acres of open space in the center of Colorado Springs.

The Master and Management Plan process will help to develop a guiding document for the next 10-15 years for the sustainable development of recreational opportunities in the open space as well as guidance for appropriate management of the natural resources. The planning process will take place for the remainder of 2019.   

Public Meeting 

The first public meeting will be held on April 2, 2019, from 6-8pm at Grant Elementary School at 3215 Westwood Blvd, Colorado Springs, CO 80918.
