City founder, General William Jackson Palmer, donated this park in 1871 giving it the dubious distinction of being Colorado Spring's first park. Located downtown, it provides a nice lunch respite for brown-bagging business people. A large band shell has live musical entertainment during the summer, and on Monday's the park hosts the ever-popular Farmers Market. Recreational options abound including horseshoe pits, shuffleboard courts and playgrounds for kids. Rest rooms and public telephones are numerous.
