El Paso County Parks supported the community need to provide access to outdoor recreation opportunities and open spaces for citizens and visitors of all ages and backgrounds. Since it was founded 50 years ago, the County Park system has grown to 8,000 acres of parks and open space, 130 miles of trails, two award winning nature centers and a variety of education and recreation programs and facilities.
El Paso County has planned many events and initiatives throughout 2021 to celebrate the history and future of the County Park system.
