I am a person who enjoys fast walking for exercise...I have been doing a 6 mile walk 4-5 times a week recently for exercise....I had been doing this at Cheesman Park every day, although i live closer to City PARK. I decided to check out City Park for my long walks last night... I was swarmed by massive groups of mosquitos and I hadn't even gone deep into the park. I was really close to the perimeter of the park on York Street, but I could see massive swarms of mosquitos everywhere...and yes, they started to land on me and I could feel bites through my jeans, arm, and even on my head...I kept going as I was kinda of surprised by all this...As i kept walking, the bites continued...I decided to leave the park and enter the neighborhoods close to City Park.. The neighborhoods near the park seemed okay if you live there - but, I don't know, the energy of the neighborhoods felt dark and gloomy and after only 2 miles out of the 6 I needed to walk, my energy level felt so low I almost returned home - 4 miles too early.. I decided to walk back to Cheesman Park where I always had done my walking exercise.... Once I got into the area right near Cheeseman, the energy felt much more alive and much more positive and comforting....I entered Cheeseman Park and there were NO MOSQUITOS (I've never been bitten by a mosquito in Cheesman while exercising)...my energy level went way up and I started walking much faster...I felt good again.... The moral of the story here is not only did Cheesman Park not have biting swarming mosquitos, but that the energy surrounding Cheeseman Park, and inside the park itself, feels far more positive and energizing than the City Park area...I recommend Cheesman Park much much more than City Park for these reasons..

Beautiful park, great atmosphere with cyclists, runners, picnics, bird watchers. Yeah, there are sometimes homeless people sleeping along the edge of the park, but it's the city, no big deal. The park is kept clean and the police patrol often. I feel completely safe there. The best place for a picnic or stroll around the lake.

A great walk with nice views. Gorgeous trees full of good looking squirrels make you smile when you are accelerating your pace.

City park, like everywhere else in the Denver metro has been completely overrun by drug addicted homeless who migrated here when marijuana became legal. We are natives and have watched this city turn into a dumpster fire. During our most recent trip to City Park (with our 8, 5, and 1 year old children) we encountered a used condom and a crack pipe. Hooray. There’s nothing like exposure to disease and drugs during a trip to the museum to make you want to run for the hills. This city is gross now. We hate it here. Good luck to anyone who comes here- I hope you don’t find or step on a drug needle.

the view had the mountains behind the buildings, it was a nice picture but very hard to capture. You have to stand on the steps behind the denver museum to capture it the right way.
