Welcome to Woodland Park

Woodland Park, Colorado is the largest city in the smallest county in Colorado. Located 16 miles west of Colorado Springs on the west side of Pikes Peak this small town of 7000 people was established in the 19th Century to be a rest stop for miners, stagecoaches and travelers making the trip from Colorado Springs to Cripple Creek or vice versa. In that regard, all it ever was - was a place to stop, rest your horses, use the bathroom and maybe get a meal. The town offered and offers few attractions or sights other than a great view of Pikes Peak if you stand in the right spot. The only major change to the City since the 19th Century has been that due to development Woodland Park has become a bedroom community to Colorado Springs and most people who live there now commute back and forth down Ute Pass to work and do any serious shopping. Many folks in Colorado Springs would prefer to live in Woodland Park to escape the urban sprawl, summer temperatures and crime. However, due to a general housing shortage and few suitable places to build them Woodland Park is mostly unable to entertain development and growth. A deceptive City government and fundamentalist religious culture also discourages newcomers. To those fortunate to find affordable housing the City does offer a quiet small town atmosphere and privacy despite the fact that State Highway 24 runs right through the middle of town and offers almost a constant noise source. Crime is nearly zero but employment opportunities in the community or county are rare. The City refuses to allow new endeavors like marijuana into the community despite the fact it is legal almost everywhere else in the state. Also discouraged are renewable energy and any business that can't or won't locate inside the nearly extinct downtown area. Valid concerns about Highway 24 and a bypass route around the City remain an issue. Exploiting that issue seems to remain a mystery the City can't or won't resolve.
