Ambrosial green space abounds around The Broadmoor.
Just up the mountain from this Forbes Travel Guide Five-Star hotel, North Cheyenne Cañon is a waterfall-lined, wildlife-filled wonderland year-round, although an annual visit to the Hummingbird Festival, held in May, is a special treat. In downtown Colorado Springs, the lushly maintained America the Beautiful Park features multi-use trails for joggers and cyclists, while Acacia Park features horseshoe and shuffleboard courts and Bear Creek Park fills daily with dogs (and their owners, of course).
The mother of all parks, from a local standpoint, is Garden of the Gods Park, whose sandstone formations, with their craggy nooks and crannies, are ripe for exploration.
