I had a very nice time visiting this park! We grilled and had a family evening during the Jazz night on Sunday! People were happy and friendly and the food trucks were good to have as an option for food. Nice place to relax. Walked the dog in the mornings. Very clean for a city park! Near the Denver zoo,...

This is a big beautiful park! I love how open it is and the lake in the middle. My husband and I used to love going for walks around the park and people watch. It is actually the location he proposed to me! Great memories of this park!

Walked around the park while waiting for a table at a nearby restaurant. The views of the city and mountains are spectacular! Fun place to watch ducks in the pond and people roller skate. Would be an awesome place for a picnic!

My hubby and I enjoyed this park very much, except for all of the flying geese poop (it was everywhere!!). Beautiful, peaceful grass, flowers and statues. Great for joggers, families. Needs more benches, maybe we will have to see about donating one.

First time visiting and wanted to check it out since they call it their answer to New York's Central park. Other than the large pond it wasn't too impressive. Over run by the ducks and the duck pond and lily pond was dried up. nice area to just walk and get exercise however.

I like this park mainly because of its views of the city and the mountains. It can smell like elephant poo on certain days due to the zoo being right next door. There is a large lake where you can rent paddle boats.

Wanting to take photos of the Denver skyline, we truly enjoyed the City Park. Right next to the Natural History Museum, there is ample parking and space to walk. Gorgeous rose gardens were well maintained. A beautiful location to take in mountains, view of city, or just enjoy the outdoors.
