We went through the park while on a Segway Tour and loved the open beauty and people watching here. You get a feel for the culture in the city.

Want some sunshine but don't have time to drive farther out? Take a walk in City Park instead! The lake is lovely and full of birds (we saw a cormorant catching fish, which was really neat), and there are plenty of bike/walking trails to explore. There are also plenty of benches for relaxing and taking in beautiful scenic mountain views... More

We took a Bcycle from 16th street hotel out to city park, while the route was a bit busy, the park was beautiful and expansive. The zoo and the science museum are both located here. A boat park for renting kayaks and row boats.

Large park with nice walk/run track around a lake. Great for sunsets with downtown Denver on the horizon. Lake can get a little smelly with lots of Canadian Geese droppings. Not much in the way of services, but 17th street is nearby and has significant dining and entertainment options.

I went to City Park twice during my visit to Denver - I walked there from my downtown hotel to visit the Denver Museum of Science and Nature (which is at one end of the Park), and I ran there. It was a pleasant (although longish) walk from the Sheraton downtown, but was a good distance for a nice run.... More

Denver is beautiful and City Park is a jewel of its beauty. There is something renewing to have a vast landscape of gorgeous trees in City Park but the park has more to offer and worth the trip. Ferril Lake in the park has the historic Prismatic Electric Fountain. Check before you go but there are nights the fountain water... More

Stumbled across this gem when they happened to be holding a huge flea market. Great people watching, unique vendors, cold beverages, live music - made for a great afternoon!

It's peaceful for a quiet stroll with lot's of seating. The gardens are a bit of a disappointment but the fountain is nice to watch

Anytime a city invests in it's greenery, upkeep and providing such facilities, the value system speaks through people's actions, the city park is another such area to relax and enjoy, take a stroll.

This is a very peaceful place to relax and walk around. There is a great open space and a fountain for the kids to run around in. There is also a great view of downtown Denver from here and of the lake. It is very close to the Denver Nature and Science Museum.
