Beautiful spot in downtown Denver

It's currently getting a little face lift. It's a great place to walk, enjoy the lake and the view of downtown.

Had a big breakfast at a neighborhood eatery and wanted to walk it off a little so strolled around the southern half of this good sized park for a while on a sunny Saturday morning. Walked around the two ponds and the more park-like grounds in the Southern half of the park - will have to come back sometime to... More

City park offers the most variety of experiences of any park in Denver.With Jazz in the park on Sundays, the Colfax marathon, other races, events, biking, sports, the activities are endless. My only issue is the safety at night as there are homeless who sleep under trees. All around a great park in Denver

We spent the afternoon meandering the Denver City Park and experiencing its many venues. We even rented a bicycle carriage for the 5 of us--what fun!! It was lots of fun for adults and kids.

and my children did also. Sunday jazz in the park is great for a few weeks during the summer, but any day in the park is swesome.

My son and DIL live on City Park. You have this great park with walking, ponds, biking, playgrounds and more. You also have the Zoo and the Science Museum and so much more. Great city park and amenities.

Convenient location in a nice neighborhood. Lovely place to walk around the lake. Lots of couples and dogs. You can golf there too.

I think this is the most underrated park in Denver, despite being the biggest and just 1.5 miles from downtown. It houses the Zoo and Museum of Nature & Science, and there are a few lakes/ponds, soccer fields, fountains, tennis courts, a big playground, and plenty of open space. Super easy to get to, and lots of trails criss-crossing. Great... More

We spent a couple hours walking around this park on a recent trip to Denver and it is just lovely. Tons of people out enjoying the weather, lots of dogs and families.

Very big park bordered by the Denver Zoo and Museum of Nature & Science (from which you can enjoy a beautiful view of the Rockies and sunsets). Several playgrounds for kids, tennis courts, lakes and lots of paths for running/walking. Only downside is the geese, who poop all over the park. Watch where you walk!
