Well-maintained and a safe park to picnic in and play frisbee or hacky sack with the whole family. You need to watch out for the dozens of geese and the poop that they leave behind. Not recommended for strolling at night.

Denver's City Park sits on a city black that is shares with the Museum of Nature and Science and The Denver Zoo. The park has great expanses of lawn and great trees, statues and fountains. A very restful place. We like to walk our dogs there. Yes, there are a lot of geese there but they do not bother us.

Had time to kill after checking out of our hotel on our last day of vacation and happened to stumble across the city park. We were enchanted by the lake and decided to rent a paddle boat to while away some time. It was a beautiful sunny day and was the perfect way to end our 2 week road trip... More

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...
