TOPS Story Map

Since 1997, the Trails, Open Space, and Parks program (TOPS) has played a vital role in the acquisition, protection, and preservation of more than 7,500 acres of open space and 67 parks in Colorado Springs. As TOPS celebrates its 25th year, Trails & Open Space Coalition (TOSC) has developed a unique "story map" that highlights three of the park acquisitions facilitated by the TOPS program. The stories include narratives of three community members who were instrumental in helping to acquire and improve these properties for current and future generations of Colorado Springs residents. Dive into the interactive maps and learn more about these special places.
