Kit Carson Park, Taos, New Mexico
Paseo del Pueblo Norte, Taos, New Mexico 87571| Map |
Kit Carson Park is a pleasant stopover for families to enjoy, right in the heart of old Taos. Just north of Taos Plaza, this 19-acre park features a walking and jogging track, tennis and basketball courts, open areas for soccer and Frisbee, and three baseball fields. There’s also a playground with swings and slides for younger children, and plenty of picnic areas with barbecues. What sets apart the park though is its historic cemetery, which contains the graves of Kit Carson and other Taos notables. The cemetery is over 150 years old and adds an interesting cultural dimension to what would normally be just a (very nice) city park . Kit Carson Park is a place everyone in the family can appreciate.
