Saw the boats and bikes in the park in the past and decided to check out this weekend. They wanted 30 dollars an hour for a boat or bike that would fit the four of us. With kids they might last 15 minutes and there is no refunds. Not worth it

I walked to this park and had a hard time finding the sections I was looking for because there were no signs or maps until I had walked for 10 minutes. I did enjoy relaxing on a bench overlooking the lake with the fountain. There is a great view of the lakes, pavilion, and Denver skyline from the side of... More

After reading a review here about the great fountain for kids to play in, I took my 3 year old and 11 year old nephew to play. While we were in the fountain a park worker informed us that homeless people bathe in the fountain and it quite possible to get giardia from the water. 48 hours to know if... More

I visited City Park yesterday for the Crohn's Disease event, and was amazed how nice it was. Riding the peddle boats in the small pond there made for an enjoyable experience.

During the summer there are lots of activities, people enjoy this as their extended back yard, walk/bike/relax/ take time out for this spacious area. The mile high city has many parks, try to visit them all while you are here.

City Park is the largest park in Denver and hosts the zoo, the museum of nature and science, a lake with paddle boats and a golf course. There are jazz concerts there every Sunday evening in the summer and the Colorado Symphony Orchestra plays there on occasions. It's a beautiful park in central Denver. Wish I lived closer.

We enjoyed the walk around the lake and got to take a lot of wonderful pictures of the city and mountains. I would go back there again.

Took my nephew in his stroller just to walk around the park. The trails were muddy. I assume this is from irrigation since it hadn't rained. I was very disappointed. The playground looked great for kids. The lake was pretty. Not my choice for a park in Denver.

Our niece got married in the park. What a beautiful venue for a wedding! The pavilion was very nice for the reception...until it started pouring. There are few doors you can close so beware of the weather.
