FEATURED COMMUNITY

WOODLAND PARK

The City Above the Clouds Woodland Park enjoys the best majestic view of Pikes Peak - America’s Mountain. Sitting at 8,500’ elevation we are just 18 miles west of Colorado Springs. While centrally located amidst Colorado’s many attractions, we maintain our welcoming small town feel. Residents enjoy the easy access to Pike National Forest for rock climbing, mountain biking, hiking and more. Woodland Park elevates your mountain experience to an entirely new level. Woodland Park residents are a diverse group. The city's population of 8,600 includes families, young singles, retirees, and active duty military as well as a number of artists and musicians. We are home to excellent public and private schools, Charis Bible College, unique shops, restaurants, boutiques and outstanding business services. We are known for the best Outdoor Farmers Market in the State of Colorado. The outdoor market is held each Friday from early June through the end of September. Other signature events include our 4th of July Celebration, Symphony Above The Clouds on July 5, Woodland Music Series – a series of outdoor concerts held each month during the Summer, Vino & Notes, Mountain Arts Festival, Rock and Gem Show, Cruise Above the Clouds, Oktoberfest and more. Come visit and enjoy your Colorado Mountain Experience in Woodland Park.
