  • This park is super big and has lots of big trees so it could be spectacular. There is a nice little walking path. It is really run down and poorly maintained and just kind of sad. There is a playgroun...  more »
  • We had to ask around where the Kit Carson Cemetery was, eventually someone send us to this park and maybe we came up an "non tourist" way but the whole park felt very badly maintained. The entrance wa...  more »
  • If you like to visit the grave sites of famous people, this is a must see, since everyone's heard of Kit Carson. BTW, Dennis Hopper is buried in Taos, across town.  more »

  • Lots of shade and picnic benches. They have both a toddler and an adolescent play area. Lots of space to play. Lots of weeds, too.
  • Beautiful spot, loved camping here minus quiet hour shenanigans from some of the other campers
  • Saw Alabama Shakes here and they were phenomenal! As for the venue: it's easy to get out and in. Very casual and chill. The lines to get booze were very long, but sometimes that's a good thing. Food trucks were adequate. Good sound and a pretty amazing outdoor stage. There was free parking at the courthouse, which was about a mile from the show. Closer than that, some places wanted $20 to park for the evening. If you're attending a big show in Taos book your hotel rooms early (as in the day you buy the concert ticket), everything will sell out.
  • Great park for the annual mother's day music festival.
  • Nice park and well taken care of cemetery

Where to stay in Taos

Taos offers a wealth of accommodations right in town and in the surrounding area. Plenty of small inns, bed and breakfasts, and hotels lie in and around the business district, but your options greatly expand when you consider renting a small house or an apartment. Where you stay depends on what you come for. If you want to use Taos as a base for seeing local sites, opt for accommodation within the city limits. If you plan to spend most of your time in the mountains, the Valdez and Arroyo Seco areas are convenient. Staying between these areas and downtown puts you close to the Taos Pueblo Indian Lands.
