This park is gorgeous, and a wonderful place to explore on a nice day. If you have children (or dogs!) and are looking for a great place to let them run around, this park is free and a top pick. It's close to the zoo and the science museum. Additionally, there's a pond where you can rent paddle boats. There's... More

This park is the perfect location for a nice date. We went to the Denver museum for a few hours then decided to walk around the park grounds. This is one of the best parks I've been to in a long time. The sun was shining, ducks were out and about, and a perfect 64 degrees outside. On my next... More

City Park sums up everything you want in Denver. On a recent work trip, I escaped to the park for an afternoon and was not disappointed. It's Denver, so there's sunshine everywhere, and with snow-capped mountain panoramics surrounding you, that should be enough to get you out. Better yet, there are great walking and running trails, surrounding a pond. Plus... More

I have always liked City Park because of the view. A beautiful green park with a view of both downtown and the mountains. I actually play the golf course here several times a year and find it to be a good value and always in good condition for a city golf course.

If your in denver and feel like you need to get away from the traffic or city, take lunch an outdoor activity like football and sit by the lake. It is usually pretty warm from May-August, and you will see geese and other cute animals wondering the park! Got a dog...no problem has a huge selection of open areas for... More

Lovely City Park has been much improved due to funding form the Colorado State Lottery, try and combine with a visit to the Natural History Museum. Aside form a wonderful children's playground there are quite a lot of geese in the fall, so watch your step as it were. The City Park Pavillion and large fountain are beautiful as is... More
