“Iconic downtown views”
Reviewed February 20, 2013

The park houses the Denver Museum of Nature and Science as well as the Denver Zoo, however its also worth a visit for the grounds of the park itself. Spend some time strolling the paths admiring the historic fountains and sculpture and take a paddle boat onto the lake. Come back after dark when the fountain in the center of the lake is illuminated with a rainbow of different colors.

“A great City Park.”
Reviewed February 4, 2013

I grew up in Park Hill not far from here, so spent a lot of my free time as a boy here. There is a lake with a bandstand and a neat fountain. There are a few other smaller fountains and statues, the Museum of Nature and Science and the Denver Zoo, a world class operation.

“Always used in pictures to represent Denver.”
Reviewed January 14, 2013

This is a delightful park, with a large lake. It is a fun place to walk in Denver, and the Natural History Museum and the Zoo are located at this site too.

“Jazz in the Park”
Reviewed January 10, 2013

My favorite part of this park is the Jazz in the Park that happens every summer. You go there and have a picnic, maybe bring some beer or wine in plastic containers, have dinner, and listen to some free jazz. Familys welcome. The park is huge so some people are BBQing, playing frisbee, or just dancing and listening to music.
