This is an easy, free activity for any time of the week. There are maps online outlining the trees and gardens in the City Park arboretum, and we chose our own path among them. The landscaping is nice, but not up to the level of a botanical garden. It's a working park, and that seems to take precedence over decorative... More

We weren't planning on going to the City Park, but wanted to let the kids play and run around after lunch. The park has seen better days. The goose droppings make walking on the paths almost impossible, and the lake was almost completely covered in algae. Not much to do outside here. The zoo and science museum are located here,...

We wandered here after visiting I Max theater. You can stroll around and walk to heart's content. Visit the Denver Zoo and lake side too. Got very nice pictures of Downtown and distant mountains also. A well crafted and well maintained Park.

This park is home to Denver Zoo, Denver Museum of Nature and Science, one of the most active cormorant & night heron rookeries, and a 30 year tradition of Sunday night summer concerts. Get there before 5 to select your spot up front or one under the shade of the towering elms. Either way your picnic or food truck meal... More

My daughter lives across the street from City Park. We go often when in town. It is clean and pet friendly. Beautiful lake to walk around.

We didn't have time to explore the entire park. But we did picnic in one area (near some play structures not far from the tennis courts) and had an enjoyable time. The park is large, and located smack in the middle of the city. Lots of trees and paths. The picnic facilities were fine (not super, just fine) and we... More
