Aspen Valley Ranch

Aspen Valley Ranch, donated to Pikes Peak Community Foundation by Gordon Jackson, will serve the Pikes Peak region as a center for innovative education.
This 300-acre ranch, located only one mile from downtown Woodland Park, Colorado, will offer programs, workshops, and activities focused on science and environmental education, music, the arts, practical living skills, high-altitude gardening, forest management, and more. School children, families, and adults, along with tourists visiting our area, will find creative opportunities to learn, explore, discover and create at the Ranch.


AVR is located at 1150 South West Road in Woodland Park – just one mile from downtown. When driving into Woodland Park on Highway 24 (from Colorado Springs), turn left onto West Road (at the stoplight just past Donut Mill). Follow West Road for about 1.1 miles. The entrance to AVR will be on your left (marked by two stone sculptures).

For Raven Nest concerts, follow the main drive through AVR until you reach an intersection with a pond in front of you. Bear right and follow the road around the ranch house. Raven Nest will be on your left, just past the ranch house.

Please Note: Aspen Valley Ranch is not yet open to the public, except during special events.
