The Cherry Creek State Park is a great gem in the middle of Denver. It's huge. I've only visited portions of it but I love it. We live right behind a portion of the trail and it's a great place to hike, there's even cool bridges & manmade rock formations over the water. I often take my dog to the... More

I have loved this nice little piece of nature in the city. Have been going there for 16 + years. i visit far lest frequently for two reasons. SOME visitors don't respect your personal space and are quite intimidating and the bicycle traffic (who don't have to pay to come in) many times so not follow the rules of the... More

We have been coming here for many years. Nice small reservoir to hang out on our boat. The kids love to get pulled around on tubes behind the boat.

Nice place for a refuge in a busy city. Lots of bicycle traffic. Lots of places to sneak away and be by yourself if you want. Radio controlled airplane location, shooting range, lots of trails.

I'm not sure I completely understand the additional cost above the Colorado state park fee but inside you will find it's worth it. With a man made beach, parks, just ok bike paths (some cld use some work) you can picnic, swim, rent jet skis and more. Defiantly a nice getaway without actually having to leave the city. If you...

What a great place to hike, bike, running or BBQ. Highly recommended place to chill out. Easily visible from the air.

Such a beautiful place. What pleasure to see countless families barbecuing, cycling together, dancing, running around. Saw adorable ducks in the lake too. Really pleasant around August.

I had been on a business trip in Aurora for several days stuck in a crowded conference room with minimal air conditioning. I really wanted to get outside. My co-worker recommended Cherry Creek State Park. I drove there in my rented car and walked around. I saw great scenery, including the sun setting low over the lake, with fierce sunlight... More

Cherry Creek State Park is situated smack dab in the middle of Aurora, CO. Adjacent to I-225 and Parker Rd., the park offers a wide variety of things to see and do. We have enjoyed the walking trails (keep your dog leashed please) as well as the biking paths and the shooting range. If you are a dog lover, take... More

My wife and I were only there for almost an hour. Wondering place for even a stroll. My lady took some amazing pictures. My 7 month old daughter also enjoyed her time. Cherry Creek is an amazing place to visit, smiles guaranteed.
