A view of the mountain skyline, a picnic dinner, enjoying music with neighbors and friends-what better way is there to pass a summer Sunday evening? Come to City Park and either buy dinner at the dozen assembled food trucks or bring from home. An ideal way to fill your soul before a busy work week.

Disregard the negative comments as I found this park an excellent venue for my 3.5 year old an 1.5 year old. The park offered ample space to run around and a full playground to entertain the young ones. After a play we walked around with the ducks then enjoyed a nice picnic by the lake. The park also offered bikes to hire and paddle boats to cruise the lake. Great day for the family morning and afternoon. If looking for a meal checkout the vine brewery restaurant on 17th and vine offering an excellent family friendly restaurant.

I love Denver, it is a very nice city. A walk along 16th street is always worthy. But the city park is something else. The views of Denver skyline with the lake and the sunset are really unforgettable.
On Sundays they’re a band playing, many families sit around.
Don’t miss this place!

This is not a safe park. A lot of drug deals going down in this park. I'd only consider going here if you had an organized activity you were a part of. Then leave...fast.

My wife and I were visiting our daughter and we decided to go to the park to listen to the music last Sunday. It was a glorious (bit warm) evening.

We sat off to the side under the trees, watched people and their dogs, had a few libations that we brought and we really enjoyed our time in the park. There were so many dogs at the park.

Everyone was well behaved, some drinking but we did not see anyone out of control. They had a ton of porta potti's.

When we went to the food trucks the lines were incredibly long. We decided to eat after leaving the park because the lines were too long. One couple in our group decided to look at the food and buy from the trucks. It took them fifty minutes to get soft tacos. No thanks. We decided to bring our own food next time.

Good overall experience.
