Attended the last city front jazz session at the park tonight. Music was awesome and it was easy to hear from almost anywhere around the pond. Music starts at 6 and goes until around 8. Parking is free. There are about 30 food trucks there...More

My first impression of city Park is a cesspool of a pond filled with geese. The whole eastern part of the park is open space overrun with geese and weeds. West of the pavilion is much more well-maintained Nice paths and flower gardens. The place...More

Spent some time relaxing here after visiting the capitol. The flowers were lovely and the week I was there food trucks gathered midday which was quite a treat for a quick lunch

Not much to see, but nice for walking dogs or for a picnic. There is a beautiful boat house and gazebo for a wedding. Pond and fountain were nice.

Went out for a walk with my wife. The park is beautiful, plenty of paved walkways. Nice lakes, big trees with lots of shade. But the geese are everywhere, leaving their droppings all over the place. Watch your step!!!

A view of the mountain skyline, a picnic dinner, enjoying music with neighbors and friends-what better way is there to pass a summer Sunday evening? Come to City Park and either buy dinner at the dozen assembled food trucks or bring from home. An ideal...More

I love Denver, it is a very nice city. A walk along 16th street is always worthy. But the city park is something else. The views of Denver skyline with the lake and the sunset are really unforgettable. On Sundays they’re a band playing, many...More

Good answer. I'd just add that the museum and zoo both have ample parking (and flank the park on two sides). Those parking lots can be crowded on weekends and during special events. Even when busy, though, both have... More
