Garden of the Gods in Colorado

The town of Colorado Springs boasts a public park almost four times the size of NYC’s Central Park. What! The land was given to the city in 1909 by the children of Charles Perkins, who had wanted to ensure that the land would be open to the public forever.

The sandstone spires found in the more than 1,300-acre Garden of the Gods are its most striking feature.
