Motor vehicle access eliminated in Garden of the Gods Park on Sunday
On Sunday, Oct. 15, the City of Colorado Springs Parks, Recreation and Cultural Services Department hosts its final Motorless Morning of the season in Garden of the Gods Park. The special event eliminates motor vehicle access within the park from 5 a.m.-noon.
As always, the park is free and open to the public.
During Motorless Morning, park rules and regulations, including speed limits, apply; however, skateboards and longboards are welcome on park roads. There will also be designated slow zones and one-way traffic. Visitors can park their vehicles at the Garden of the Gods Visitor and Nature Center (1805 30th Street), Garden of the Gods Trading Post (324 Beckers Lane, Manitou Springs) or in the overflow parking lot at Rock Ledge Ranch Historic Site (corner of 30th Street and Gateway Road).
Designated parking for persons with disabilities is available at the Garden of the Gods Visitor & Nature Center. From the visitor center, a shuttle into the main parking lot will be available upon request on Motorless Morning for those guests who need it. All park visitors will have access to accessible routes into and throughout the park, and the City will permit the use of other power-driven mobility devices (OPDMD), per its OPDMD policy.
