This park is located in the western portion of Colorado Springs in the foothills life zone. It is one of the most frequently used county parks. The park incorporates nearly 3 miles of Bear Creek and covers a total of 575 acres, 24 acres of which are developed for active recreation. The park is divided into three different areas linked by non-motorized, multi-purpose trails. Bear Creek East is located east of 21st Street and is home to the Parks Department's administrative offices.
A community garden, picnic pavilions, playground, volleyball court and horseshoe pits are available to users. Bear Creek Terrace, the most developed portion of Bear Creek Park, includes three playfields covering about 20 acres, an archery range, tennis courts, off-leash dog park, and numerous picnic pavilions.
