There is a boat house too, where you can rent vessels to take out into the water. Adjacent to the park is the large the City Park Golf Course.

City Park, Denver Reviews
City park is large enough to have a museum Zoo a golf course and 2 Super Fun playgrounds for the kiddos. They also host excellent live music on Sunday nights from 5 to 8. They call it jazz in the park but I've never heard actual Jazz there. For the special events they want you to park by the Museum of the zoo and walk in. There is limited parking in the neighborhood across the street. The Nature and Science Museum is worth the trip. The zoo is wonderful but it is not participate in the National Zoo reciprocal program for members which is sad
It was very enjoyable to rest under the tall trees in the shade after the Art Museum. We enjoyed walking through the gardens. The flowers were beautiful and smelled great. We enjoyed the art and fountains. There were a lot of picture opportunities at this park. We rode the bus downtown and made a day out of it.
City Park is a beautiful way to spend a evening in the summer time. Vast green areas to relax with friends to take a jog or walk alone. I personally love you walk and look at the beautiful home that line its edges. From historical builds to more modern contemporary constructions. Timeless living in a truly beautiful landmark of our city. Over the years City Park has seen it's share of negative publicity and it's nice that those unfortunate events haven't deterred many from the parks usage. The continual improvements by the city keep the park looking more and more beautiful by every renovations or revamping of areas. I love to go to the park anytime anyone asks me to go.
You can see a couple man-made lakes. In the summer they have Jazz in the Park and there’s a bunch of food trucks and gatherings of friends and families. You can paddle boat here. Lots of geese poop everywhere. Those geese are just everywhere! The Denver Museum of Nature and Science is in this park. This place is ideal for running, walking, bicycling, picnicking, sitting on benches near the water, watching some interesting birds.
Love City Park. It's so relaxing to just go take a blanket; get under a tree and have a peaceful Zen moment. I went for the Black Arts festival unfortunately it rained but the vendors were troopers and toughed it out. It was a nice time. Would be nice if they could post upcoming events somewhere in the park.
