COLORADO SPRINGS - The City of Colorado Springs announced the addition of approximately 80 acres of property at the Corral Bluffs Open Space. 

The city acquired the property through a partnership with the Trust for Public Land. The city says Corral Bluffs Open Space provides a critical site for paleontological and archaeological research. 

 “In this era of rapid population growth, it’s imperative that communities act quickly to secure unique lands for parks and open space when opportunities arise,” said Jim Petterson, Colorado and southwest director for The Trust for Public Land. “

According to the City of Colorado Springs the acreage was purchased for $547,000 with funding provided by the City's Trails, Open Space and Parks (TOPS) program.

Corral Bluffs is located near Highway 94 on the city’s east side and accessible to the public through guided hikes. Visit www.corralbluffs.org for more information.
