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

The fountain at the entry is very nice. As soon as you get into the park, you will realize that there are not much benches or places to sit and relax. It is really good for walk/jog, but not spending much time here isn't worth.

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
