“Open urban space plus concerts.”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed April 4, 2013

This is a fantastic urban park with many many activity options. The zoo and natural history museum are adjacent. Walking, running, bicycling, sports, paddle boats, ... etc. This is an incredible under utilized city asset.

“Iconic downtown views”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed February 20, 2013

The park houses the Denver Museum of Nature and Science as well as the Denver Zoo, however its also worth a visit for the grounds of the park itself. Spend some time strolling the paths admiring the historic fountains and sculpture and take a paddle boat onto the lake. Come back after dark when the fountain in the center of the lake is illuminated with a rainbow of different colors.

“A great City Park.”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed February 4, 2013

I grew up in Park Hill not far from here, so spent a lot of my free time as a boy here. There is a lake with a bandstand and a neat fountain. There are a few other smaller fountains and statues, the Museum of Nature and Science and the Denver Zoo, a world class operation.

“Always used in pictures to represent Denver.”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed January 14, 2013

This is a delightful park, with a large lake. It is a fun place to walk in Denver, and the Natural History Museum and the Zoo are located at this site too.
