America the Beautiful City Park, Colorado Springs, Colorado

“America the Beautiful” City Park
* 126 Cimino Drive, Colorado Springs, Colorado
Article by Thomas Baurley, Technogypsie Productions, July 21, 2016 (original review 7/20/08)

Formerly Confluence Park, this 30 acre park was recreated and re-dedicated as “America the Beautiful” in 1992 as part of Colorado Springs Downtown Action Plan for assurance of the vitality of the downtown area. The Julie Penrose fountain was added in 2007 as a fabulous water park section with an slowly turning modern art piece in the center of a timed fountain that patrons can cool off in. The art piece reminds alot of people of the infamous “Stargate”. Its called the “Continuum”.

This beautiful park has become a weekly adventure for me and my son during the summer months for him to splash and play in the fountain waters. Lots of open grass fields for the kids to play,
an amazing kid’s playground very artistically done, and great recreational features such as picnic tables, benches, walkways, and restrooms. Rating 5 stars out of 5 (Visited 7/20/2008; 7/1/2017; 7/20/2017 – formerly rated 4 stars in 2008).

  1. Colorado Springs has always been a great place for parks and recreation. America the Beautiful City Park is yet another wonderful addition to Colorado Springs.

    1. I couldn’t agree more. I moved back here just recently and am astounded how much I didn’t see when I was living here in the early 2000’s. This park is becoming a weekly hot spot for me and my kiddo.

  2. In reading your review, I’m wondering whether the park or the art received the review. And who is it that does the rating? Thanks for any information you can provide. Kat

    1. Hi Kat. I originally wrote this in 2008, just updated now in 2017. My review site is a work in progress. Actually the review covers the art as well as the park. It is moving more and more to a 5 rating. The sculpture is a 5 star piece. the park itself a 4 star because of the location and difficulty to access, near the tracks, and some other issues that seem to be cleaned up since 2008. Thanks, Tom
