  • You will get constantly harassed by beggars and bums. They litter all over the park. Not much fun to utilize if you can't do it peacefully. It was a little scary after dark with not much lighting and ...  more »

  • Lots of fun activities in the park! Stopped by the visitor's center and they were extremely nice! Tons of great restaurants in the area! The only down side was seeing the number of homeless people.
  • I never knew how many activities they have at Acacia Park! You can check out the Uncle Wilbur fountain, play on the playground, or play chess on a big chessboard with 2' tall pieces. And there are food/craft/art fairs going on all the time. What a beautiful piece of downtown Colorado Springs!
  • It's a public park. Best to keep expectations low and be happily surprised. The park occasionally hosts events and farmer's markets, which actually is a lot of fun. There is also a fantastic Portland-style tiny home coffee shop serving third-wave coffee on the southern side of the park. Great, great coffee.
  • Farmers' Market Thursdays and Sundays are great! There's armed security on premises so everyone is safe, and the Uncle Wilbur fountain starts operation at 11 a.m.
  • It's a beautiful park, great views and food nearby. Biggest downfall: Obscene amounts of homeless people. :/ Some are quiet and keep to themselves, others are not afraid to ask every passerby for spare change, cigarettes, or weed.

Where to stay in Colorado Springs

To experience the scenic beauty surrounding Colorado Springs while on holiday, consider staying at a resort just outside the city, offering sweeping views of the mountains plus access to championship golf courses, tennis courts, and spa/fitness facilities. You can also discover Colorado's great outdoors by pitching a tent at one of the area's many campgrounds, or by renting a cozy cottage or mountain cabin.  If you prefer to stay near downtown, consider a moderately priced inn or motel, located a short walk from the city's finest shops and restaurants.
