A beautiful and very large city park. Many things to do. Playground. Golf course. Pond with paddle boat rentals. The Denver Zoo and Museum of Nature and Science are located here also.

I've been coming here since I was a kid. It is big, and has everything a city park needs. There are lakes, ducks, geese, fish, baseball diamonds, a museum, a planetarium, and I-Max. There is plenty of free parking both above ground, and below ground,...More

This is a great park close to attractions and Trader Joes is down the street. Look on groupon for discounts.

One of the best things about City Park is the walking paths are numerous, but well groomed. Making for an easy mile loop if that is all you want, or a four mile loop. Based on what you want you can wander the outside path...More

City Park has some of the best (if not) views in Denver. The high rise buildings of Denver outlined against the mountains is stunning. You can walk around the lake, take a paddle boat out on the lake, play on the play ground or run...More

This park is located in the same area as the science/natural history museum and the zoo so you can do all three while there! The park was beautiful and I enjoyed the MLK quotes they have in stone. There are a lot of Canadian geese...More

City Park has great open spaces, and beautiful little lakes. There are plenty of benches surrounding the lake, allowing visitors to relax and enjoy the view. Beware if you are waking through the grassy areas. There are large amounts of duck poop in the grass.

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
