A fantastic place, always welcoming, inviting, and non-judgemental. Check out their website, they are exactly who they claim to be - an alternative lifestyle community center.
The Ellicott Wildlife Rehabilitation Center is still going strong, but is in need of serious funding. The mission is to receive injured, orphaned, and ill wildlife in hopes of rehabilitation and return to life in the wild. The Ellicott rehabilitation team is licensed by State of Colorado and U.S. Fish and Game. They are a 501(c)3 nonprofit organization, with an ALL volunteer staff that receives NO funding from the state or federal governments :( It is baby Great Horned Owl season again! Over the last few weeks, many owl chicks were blown out of their nests during the March 2016 Blizzard and and major snow storms. Please visit the Ellicott site to donate today!
Best live entertainment venue in Colorado Springs! Great sound and lights, very clean and classy environment, feels like Chicago, or New York.
Sidewalk's End Montessori is an absolutely fabulous school! The heart of every school is its teachers and Sidewalk's End's are top notch. Led by Ms. Lynne, who has won community awards as an outstanding teacher, the team of instructors is motivated, kind, intelligent, loving, and actively engaged in your child's learning. Together they have decades of teaching experience and many have Master's degrees in addition to special instruction on teaching/leading the Montessori method. My oldest children attended Sidewalk's End for the entire three years we lived in Colorado Springs. My oldest graduated from Sidewalk's End and attended our local elementary school this year. She excelled in every area, due to her great foundation established at Sidewalk's End. I could not be happier as she continues to be excited to go to school every day. My other daughter was lucky enough to continue at Sidewalk's End this year where she continues to grow and learn at her own pace and focusing on her areas of interest. She is happy, bright, and socially adjusted. She also loves going to school each day! As a military assignment takes us away from the area, this school will be one of the things I miss the most. I cannot say enough great things about Sidewalk's End. You will love it!
Most concerts are free and very high quality. Lots of visiting composers/performers.
Nice park, grass, trees, a stream, music, food and fun. Wonderful art and creativity, view, enjoy, buy.
PRC is located in the heart of Colorado Springs near the I-25 intersection of Garden of the Gods and Austin Bluffs Parkway for easy access coming from any direction.

The show was a smash hit!!! It was literally standing room only!!! The dancers performed really well, featuring a vast selection of dance genres! It is an event not to be missed!!!
Really great park to take the family. Great plase to run, barbeque and picnic. Also near many stores if you should want a drink or get hungry.
Awesome new place! The teas are wonderful, the staff is open and friendly and the food is great!! Worth getting off the main drag for!! Live music on Tuesdays and I hear they will have open mic nights as well starting this month!!
I love this place! The staff is very friendly, the food is great and the tea is *amazing*! It's certainly a bit off the beaten path, but it's worth it. It's certainly not a conventional tea house and it's still early in it's development - having opened doors in April, but the atmosphere is cozy and relaxed. It's also great to have a new music venue in the Springs on Tuesday nights. Definitely worth checking out!
A snug and tucked-away treasury of rich offerings across all genre of books or movies. It is quiet and this is not where the crowds are congregating, making it a comfortable place to spend some quality time among the ink. Only a few computers make this a sweet place.
A fine event scene on the reknowned Colorado College Campus. Historic architecture and wildly phenomenal acoustics make this one of the best kept secrets among COS most cultured population. Many offerings are free for the enjoyment of the community, and the community <3s this, turning out in good numbers for every event. <3 Packard Hall and Colorado College!
A challenging place to commune with nature, both flora and fauna abound. The hills are a bit tough now that I have a severe enough ankle injury. Concern for my ability to navigate the mountainous scenery and habitats make me nervous about going so far this year, but I WILL GO! SOON! I hope to get a season ticket. I can't wait to see all the beautiful and well-cared for beasties! And some of them are wearing clothes!! ;-P Great place for people watching as well as animal peeping.
For ever grateful for the day The Lord brought us to the springs .
I Think this church would really appeal to the Independent's readership. They are community based with a strong emphasis on service projects. It's a place where you can roll up your sleeves and make a real difference in Colorado Springs and have such fun doing it! It's radical approach to the truth in the bible is really powerful and people's lives are changing.
There is such a willingness on the part these people to let their real lives, real pain show and walk compassionately with each other.
Its more than just church.... its home. This is my family.
... The Spring Church is a prelude of what all the churches should be at the end of times ... I beleive that it will set an example to the one's that claims to be, rather then obey the gospel of God ... It is calll "Philadelphia" meaning ( LOVE OF A BROTHER ).
REVELATION 3: 7-13 ... " I pray that all members of this church, support Pastor Gary in what God have call him to do in his name ... Amen
At this church, people don't just talk the talk, they walk the walk...they really care about all of God's creation, (feeding the hungry, helping many who are hurting for various reasons...addicts, homeless, sick & those in prison), I love this place! This "family" is not about a religion but relationships! True DOERS of the WORD of God!!
