The Garden Of The Gods was named in 1859 by two surveyers who were founding nearby Colorado City. The name stuck due to the spectacular and jagged red sandstone rock formations that abruptly stick hundreds of feet into the sky. 240 acres were originally purchased in 1879 by Charles Perkins, owner of the Burlington Railroad; he loved the landscape so much he added more land over the years, and wanted it to be preserved as a park for all to enjoy. After he died, his children respected his wishes and donated the entire 480 acres to the city of Colorado Springs in 1909.
