Cherished as a local landmark for many years, this stone building was originally the home of the Starsmore family. It was purchased by the City of Colorado Springs and moved to its present location in 1992. It serves as an introduction to Cheyenne Cañon and its beautiful waterfalls, rock formations, wildflowers and wildlife.

Here you will discover activities for guests of all ages. Begin your exploration of the park at Starsmore Discovery Center, where you will find:

  • Free Cañon Maps
  • Regional Information
  • Bird-watching Window
  • Fascinating Dioramas and hands-on Nature Exhibits
  • Books, videos, and hummingbird feeders for sale
  • Programs: Guided hikes, children’s nature programs, Golden Prospects, Birthday Parties, Tipi Raising & Ute Heritage Workshop, Junior Ranger Program, Cheyenne Cañon Camp and more!

Visitors should use extra caution and expect to encounter varying degrees of flood damages throughout the Park. Visitors may also encounter construction delays on park roads and temporary closures of trails as work progresses through 2014.

Note: Several parking areas and trails located on adjacent US Forest Service Lands that are accessed via North Cheyenne Canon Park will remain closed. For more information regarding specific trail closures on adjacent US Forest Service Lands click here.
