History: Acacia Park was donated to the City of Colorado Springs in 1871 by its founder General William Jackson Palmer. It is the City’s first park.


The new play area was recommendation from the Downtown Historic Parks master plan, which had a robust public participation process.  Funding for the new state of the art play structure came from the El Pomar Foundation and  Voters approved ballot issue 2B in the November 2019 election, which allowed the City to keep $7 million in excess 2018 Taxpayer Bill of Rights (TABOR) revenue for specified park projects. The renovation took place in 2022.


This park is managed by City of Colorado Springs Parks, Recreation and Cultural Services: (719) 385-5940.  For more info visit
