El Paso County Parks invites the public to review the draft Homestead Ranch Regional Park Master Plan. The Master Plan provides guidance for the next seven to ten years for capital improvements, construction of open space amenities, implementation of educational programs, and operations and maintenance.

Located at the edge of Black Forest this 458-acre regional park has diverse topography ranging from rolling, open meadows to tree-covered bluffs running the length of the park. A natural spring-fed pond and creek in the central valley of the park attracts deer, coyotes, foxes, fishing, and over 35 types of waterfowl and birds. The park includes a playground, a playing field, and picnic pavilions. Equestrian riders can water their horses at the trough while enjoying over 5 miles of trails throughout the park.

A public hike hosted by El Paso County Parks will be held at Homestead Ranch Regional Park on Friday, June 24 at 2:00 pm. This is an opportunity to take a guided hike and provide input for the Master Plan.
