Colorado Springs has a timeless landscape. What did prior generations visions for the future and how can we blend those visions with a contemporary city?

I am most connected to Colorado Springs when I am hiking on any of the trails in the region.  On the trail and in life the views are worth the effort.

I love hiking our State Park – being in nature and feeling miles outside of COS, but close enough that I can go on a whim and leave when the rains pop up!

I reach my peak and feel most connected to Colorado Springs when I am enjoying solitude in one of the City’s parks.

Our numerous eclectic neighborhoods help define and connect us, the peak and pinnacle of our "community" is where we talk to neighbors, friends, and family on trails, sidewalks, and parks.

I feel most connected to Colorado Springs at dog parks! The dog park reminds me that we can all come together to support the things we love.
