This isn't the "dirty" you were hoping for. I mean, the man-made lake has a lot of mud, algae, and dirt-sand. I love the lake best. You will see pelicans, gulls, ducks, and geese. You may see deer, but I rarely do. We swim there every summer, and the place is a popular spot for fishing, too. There's a campground,... More

The dog park is very good, although there are no fences. There's a stream and its dirt ground so your dogs can get muddy. The trails are excellent and fun. Great scenery.

The beach at the park was huge. We had a great day getting plenty of sun. The swimming area is very nice. Big enough for boats and jet skis. Great view of the mountains. Watch out goose droppings

This park has long trails and open areas and would be great for a long bike ride or jog, but it wasn't too entertaining for us. It has a large lake where you can swim, cookout and rent jet ski's. We enjoyed the lake, but overall there was not much at the park.

I live in this area now and there is new management at the marina, so I am not sure what the boating situation is now, but the rentals last year at the time were great fun, great day and typical sunny Colorado weather the day we went. It rains every afternoon here now, not typical of CO. Weird weather patterns... More

Cherry Creek State park always amazes me. It is inside the biggest metro area in the state, but once you are inside, you feel like you are miles from the city. The staff do an amazing job keeping things ship-shape, especially given the large number of visitors. There's something for everyone - a top-shelf dog park, a shooting range, a... More
