Very well run outfit. Safety first was excellent for all concerned, but still with the fun element. Great support from supervising staff.

I ride to then through this park a few times a week on my road bike. It is one of my favorite places. There are plenty of paved bike trails and roads with bike lanes, and it is connected to the Denver area bike trail /bike lane system through the Cherry Creek trail and the Spillway Trail. Drivers tend to be more courteous than they usually are on the park roads. There are also mountain bke trails available nearby. This park has plenty of amenities besides for bike trails: it has camp sites, a swimming beach, shooting range, R/C aircraft area, boat launches, fishing, nature trails, picknick areas, historic sites and probably a few things I am forgetting about.
Definitely worth a visit or stay if you are in the South Denver metro area.
Tip: there is a fee to enter the park if you drive to it, however, if you walk, jog, or bike in there is no fee. I reccomend walking or biking to the park if you live, work, or are staying nearby.

Cherry Creek State Park is to us locals, the best beach in town. Oh, the only beach in town. When my children were small, it didn't matter that a good swimmer could swim across, it had sand and water. We spent many hours there. It is a great place for walking, biking, and viewing wild life. The bird population is huge. I hear the campgound is terrific, although, I have not used it. The dam was built in the 1950's to control the water flow in Cherry Creek, which has its headwaters about 30 miles south, near Franktown. Cherry Creek flow continues on into Denver where it meets the South Platt River.

I used to run there back in the day. Lots of great trails for running. I still like to drive through periodically and our daughter sometimes drives through as a shortcut to work.

Great place for outdoor recreation don't miss it if you're in the area.
