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 such a great place to smoke and chill while in Denver. So much going always a great vibe and so beautiful. Plane lands get rental car go to mindful dispensary, hit the park and find way to Petes kitchen in Colfax. The perfect...More
The concierge at hotel informed of things happening while in downtown Denver; this was the largest gathering of food trucks in the metro Denver area. After museum visit, stopped by to see what was there. The park area was quite pleasant & accommodated the large...More
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
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 underground parking that some folks don't seem to know about, so unless there are "lot full" signs posted, it's easy to park there and take a short walk to the park. If picnicking and/or have a car full of kids or folks that have difficulty walking, I'd recommend that you drive into the park and drop off passengers/gear near where you want to picnic, then have the driver park the car. It's a BIG park! (Takes me at least an hour to walk briskly around its 3-mile perimeter (outside the zoo and museum.)
I am almost positive you can. You have to go through the city to reserve your day if it is available though. There is a certain time of year when brides line up around a block downtown to request to have their wedding at a... More
I am almost positive you can. You have to go through the city to reserve your day if it is available though. There is a certain time of year when brides line up around a block downtown to request to have their wedding at a Denver Park. I know my sister in law had to wait in line over night to get her wedding date at City Park at the end of August. Good Luck!
