City Park, Denver Reviews

  • 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.

  • Great place to go walk around or just relax. Good location between the zoo and museum. You can hear the animals. Fun water fountains and good exercise. Parking can be tricky on weekends. Outdoor bathrooms available so you don't have to bug museum or zoo. Go check it out

  • Amazing park with side walks totally useable with a wheelchair. Canadian geese everywhere! Water works for playing in, and the kids were having a blast. Well worth the trip. Parking is plentiful and is located between the Museum and the zoo.

  • My favorite park in Denver! They always keep it SUPER CLEAN. There's a few playgrounds, great fountains, an awesome lake that has boats and paddle boards, and it's literally right next to Denver Zoo! They also have tennis courts and it's very safe, too!

  • This has always been a great Park I've enjoyed it much over the years as I visited and then as a local. I remember when you could drive through the whole thing and that used to be my favorite little Cruise when I would come to visit Denver it's even nicer now that it's more pedestrian-friendly. It has a really great history of Botanical Gardens and such. I think it's neat the preservation that's taking place and it always seems there's people there utilizing the park.
