So we visited this park a few times because the Zoo and the Denver Museum of Nature and Science is located right in the middle of the park. To be honest this park is gigantic and there is a lot of things to see. Yet, our favorite thing that we enjoyed seeing at the park had to be the lake. It was such an awesome view from the museum to see there gigantic lake. Yet, the only thing I would say is be careful driving there. This park is really big and you can get lost!

Great view of downtown Denver from the steps of the Nature & Science Museum. Easy parking next to the museum for free. The museum also has a large dinosaur next to it. We did not go inside the museum, but it looked very nice.

It was fun to see the kids running in the water jets at the base of the museum steps facing downtown. There were a couple of persons blowing huge bubbles next to the museum. A fun place.

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.

Waste of time visiting this park, as there is zero drive in access and you must park a block or two away. Not a problem if it was me and my dog, but not with grandkids and family in tow. No signage indicating when or why parking is closed, nothing on any website i could find. I guess it's not really worth anything except to those who live nearby or within walking distance. I don't suspect they have such a large taxpayer funded park with the only planned parking in nearby neighborhoods that visitors know nothing about.

Where are we supposed to park? No one knows. No one has information. The website is useless. There are no signages for car park. We wished to visit but after the confusion with car park, we decided not to visit at all.

Not a bad spot. Near the Zoo and Museum of Natural Science/IMAX. A nice place to walk or jog. Recenlty completed infrastructure improvements. Two lakes, with geese and ducks. Keep in mind it is near the intersection of Colfax Avenue and Colorado Blvd. This area is not a safe place after dark. You will find vagrant types hanging around the park. So, it is a good idea not to go alone, or if you do, ride a bicycle so you can easily escape a potentially dangerous situation. City Park would greatly benefit from increased police monitoring.

After reading a review here about the great fountain for kids to play in, I took my 3 year old and 11 year old nephew to play. While we were in the fountain a park worker informed us that homeless people bathe in the fountain and it quite possible to get giardia from the water. 48 hours to know if they are sick or not. Please do not play in the fountain.

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.

This gorgeous park is situated right next to The Denver Zoo and Museum of Nature and Science. My mom and I took a stroll and enjoyed the geese and water view for a good hour after lunch.
