Oak Valley Ranch is in the far west side of Colorado Springs. It is located in areas referred to as Rockrimmon and / or Peregrine. If you like to hike, bike, watch wildlife or just walk the dog this is a great neighborhood, and it’s affordable.
Oak Valley Ranch Park has a softball field, basketball courts, a play area and extra green space for soccer practice.
Wilson Ranch Park is loaded with a pool and water park, skateboard park, tennis courts, basketball courts, a play area and a big green space.
There is a greenbelt and sidewalks that make it easy to walk or bike between these two parks.
Ute Valley Park is a very big park for hiking and mountain biking.
Woodmen Valley Park, about 2.5 miles away, is partly developed and also has undeveloped space where you can see “Hoodoos” up close. Call me, David Gibson, 719-304-4684, for details on where you can see Hoodoos.
Caution, there are cactus in some of these undeveloped park areas. They can lay very low below other vegetation and be hard to see. Responsible adult supervision, appropriate footwear and pants are prudent when exploring these parks.
The nearby Blodgett Peak Open Space Trail takes you into the Pike National Forest. There are paved parking spaces and a portable potty at the trailhead.

When considering neighborhoods and homes west of I-25 , you should be aware that the Rockrimmon / Peregrine area, including Oak Valley Ranch, is home to an abundance of wildlife including bears, mountain lions, deer, coyotes, foxes, bobcats, rabbits and squirrels.
These houses are bordered by vast areas of forested areas and natural landscaping. It is not feasible or practical to pursue the reduction or relocation of the wildlife.
Governmental agencies will not take action on a request for trapping or eliminating indigenous wildlife unless there are life threatening circumstances.
Wildlife are normally wary of people and pose a minimal threat if you abide by the recommendations of wildlife officials. Never feed wildlife or approach them.
