One of the city’s most exciting projects is Panorama Park. The southeastern community has re-envisioned the 13.5-acre park and crafted a master plan to transform the park into a neighborhood asset in an under-served area of Colorado Springs. Plans include an adventure trail, a new playground, multi-use ball courts, sports fields, all ages fitness area, a water spray feature, a community gathering space and more. This will be the largest park renovation in city history!
