City Park is the home to the zoo, the Museum of Natural Science, a golf course, playgrounds, a huge fountain, an event center, etc. Not exactly Balboa Park in Cali or Central Park in NY, but damn good by anyone's standards. Check the Denver city events website for concerts and festivals.

A great place for letting little ones run and run and run... plenty of space! Large and interesting playgrounds. Many picnicking spots. Beautiful rose garden (close to the Science Museum). Great photography spots, did a few portraits here and they turned out nice! Standing by the rose garden right behind the science museum, you'll get THE perfect view of Denver,... More

What a beautiful park! I loved the paths and the openness of the park. There were families taking a stroll, young adults playing disc golf, bikers, runners and every type of outdoor enthusiast!

The park has some beautiful fountains and a large lake. Unfortunately there are too many geese that leave more than their share of messed on the path around the lake. Stay in the grassy areas and you will have a great time.

Thousands of locals go every Sunday evening to free Jazz In The Park, with music from 6-8 pm. Picnic baskets by the hundreds with families enjoying a festive atmosphere. Food trucks also very plentiful if you are a visitor and do not have access to a picnic lunch. Highly recommended for a Sunday late afternoon all summer long.

Spent several hours here with our three year old son on the morning of Friday, June 19th, 2015. We played in the playground, which has a fenced area perfect for little guys, we walked around the shady paths, and we even rented a paddle boat and took a spin around the pond - although the woman in front of us...

When we moved to CO a few years ago, my husband discovered City Park Jazz - each Sunday evening starting in June and going through the summer, City Park hosts artists to make music in the gazebo, while anyone who wants to listen sits around the lake with a picnic and enjoys the entertainment. Our family has made it a... More

This place is worth a visit! We came on a beautiful day and enjoyed sunshine and the park. Great place to walk or run with your dog. You can also rent a paddle boat or bring your own small boat to take advantage of the water. Bring your kids! Bring your wife!
