    Antlers Park is significant as one of the oldest municipal parks in Colorado Springs, dating to 1882. Once serving as a demonstration garden to display the vegetation suitable to the region, and later providing the front yard for the Antlers Hotel, it now contains several memorial items. These items include the Denver & Rio Grande's oldest locomotive (Number 168, listed on the National Register), a stone monolith commemorating Lieutenant Zebulon Pike (dedicated in 1906 at the 100th anniversary of his expedition), and a pavilion originally attached to the northern end of the Denver & Rio Grande Railroad Depot at 10 South Sierra Madre Street. Locally significant.
