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

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.
