After a day of walking the town shopping, dining, visiting museums, the Kit Carson Park is a nice place to walk to and relax. Sit, listen to the birds, people watch, relax. We take a stroll in the park whenever we are in Taos.

I attended the Taos Wool and Fiber Festival in Kit Carson Park. There was plenty of room and the parking was nearby.

A park with the remains of many of Taos's founders and historical figures. Resting within the park are "Kit Carson" and his descendants.

Great playground for children (one for super small kids and another for 5-9 year olds). Basketball court, walking trail, and plenty of open space. The park is also the burial ground for many historical Taos figures including Kit Carson. Look for Manby's grave just outside...More

We have read taht it is difficult to find Kit Carson's grave. Not necessarily. Start at the Kit Carson Home and walk as directed by the museum for 2 blocks and you will be at the cemetery near the grave. Look for the US flag...More
