More About Woodland Park Colorado

Woodland Park, Colorado is known as a “pass-through” town, a junction for travel to other locations. It’s also been called a sleepy bedroom community adjacent to Colorado Springs.

But to the people who live and visit here, it is a unique, fun town with the personality of the modern west. We love our cowboys, outdoorsmen, and artisans alike. The passers-through don’t know what they are missing.

Woodland Park covers about 6 square miles and is surrounded by national forest which limits its growth. It is a small town of about 7,000 friendly people who are grateful for the enjoyment of living in what is a beautiful and serene natural environment.

Woodland Park Colorado - Up the Pass

In the 1880’s, with the road improvement up Ute Pass and the Midland Railway, tourism worked its way up to the town, and it still works much the same, even without the now defunct railway. Visitors come up “the pass” to get out of the smog and the heat, to hike our trails, and attend our festivals and our Farmer’s Market—one of the best in the state.

The City Above the Clouds has a moderate climate, really, the snow comes and it goes, unlike the cities on the western slope where the build-up of snow lingers from October to May. In the summertime, our daily—if we are lucky—rainstorms replenish our reservoirs and grow the beautiful wildflowers.

The city’s pavilion and cultural center often host free concerts—year ‘round. The Third Friday Art Walk is a popular event where select retailers and art galleries stay open late and wine is poured. Memorial Park, with its water feature, is a common area for picnics and gatherings.

We invite newcomers to replenish their spirit among nature’s plenty, to explore the history of Woodland Park, and to partake of the hospitality of our restaurateurs and proprietors.
