  • The dog park is located inside the old tennis courts. What a joke. There is no grass or gravel and other than having a fenced in area it’s not worth the visit.  more »
  • I liked the park and enjoyed the little walk to the cemetery. It doesn't take much time and is a pleasant way to stretch your legs.  more »
  • The headstones are excellent history points of interest. The upkeep of the park is not good. I wish people would not mark up historic items. Enforcement of posted dog laws would be helpful.  more »
  • Years ago I use to display my solar display at the Solar Music Festival. I have been to many shows at the park including art, craft shows, automobile and music shows. The wool festival in the fall is well worth seeing as are all the shows throughout the year. The park sits in downtown Taos and was once the Mamby residence's English garden. There is a cemetery at the south east side of the park where Kit Carson is buried. The park is a good size park and is a great place to sit under the trees and read or have a picnic. The park is family friendly.
  • Wow, had the best time watching and listening to Sting. Amazing weather for an amazing artist! Love Sting.
  • Unbelievable! Not one mosquito or bug bite in the middle of summer after a 5 hour concert in the park. Thank you! The new stage and sound system are superb!
  • Such a great park! We had the delight of seeing it set up for the Easter Egg Hunt which was wonderful. Our dogs loved the fenced-in off-leash area at the old tennis court. Be sure to close the gate and have a laugh watching your pups. Overall a lovely park to stroll through.
  • Not much of a park. They had a really really really loud concert there when we were there. The cemetery is very interesting.
