  • ...with Kit Carson's name on it. Grassy area, trees. There was a wool festival there when we visited. That was very interesting. I had no idea there were so many kinds of sheep wool.  more »
  • Kind of disheartening to see the shape this place is in. You would think that Taos would take more pride in itself by keeping the park in better shape.  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.
  • Excellent playground area for the kids.
