Park and Recreation Advisory Board (PARAB)
The mission of the Park and Recreation AdvisoryBoard (PARAB) is to help build Manitou Springs' future through the promotion of recreational activities and through the enhancement of our parks and trails.
The parks of Manitou Springs provide a link with the town's past, accentuate the beauty of its natural setting and afford a multitude of leisure-time activities for residents and visitors alike.
Manitou Springs serves as the gateway to some of the most scenic trails in the mountain west. From Barr Trail ascending Pikes Peak, to the hike through Waldo Canyon, to hidden passageways through historical railroad tunnels, we have trails to suit the rugged enthusiast as well as the more casual hiker, all with the opportunity to capture nature at its best.
