We were there on a beautiful day. We walked around the lake and over to the zoo. Many great panoramic pictures of the Denver skyline with faint mountains behind it. Interesting cormorant rookery and we even saw a giant pelican!

Good answer. I'd just add that the museum and zoo both have ample parking (and flank the park on two sides). Those parking lots can be crowded on weekends and during special events. Even when busy, though, both have... More
