A state park in Colorado Springs could be getting bigger.
City officials are considering whether to acquire 120 acres to expand Cheyenne Mountain State Park. The park now encompasses 1,680 acres next to Fort Carson.
The city would use local parks and open space money to buy the land. City officials are planning to tour the land Wednesday, but they haven't announced a possible price for the parcel.
Cheyenne Mountain State Park opened in 2008 after Colorado Springs spent $8.2 million on the land. The city owns the park, but the state manages it. More than 150,000 people visited last year.
