June 3, 2022 – 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, Homestead Ranch Regional Park is 458 acres of 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. Homestead Ranch Regional Park also 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.
The draft Master Plan is available to review at the following online locations:
