Denver City Park Denver
Where are we going today?
There's no reason you can't experience that amazing nature without leaving the city! City Park, located in the heart of Denver, is known as an urban park, and is a whopping 330 acres for you to explore!
The park itself it Denver's premier regional park, and not only has a host of activities that you can enjoy, but it is also home to Denver Zoo AND the Denver Museum of Science and Nature (which has an IMAX!)...so you're in for a fun filled family day!
City Park is great for those active kids, as there is not only a host of outdoor space to run around and play in, but there are specific activities that the whole family can enjoy.
Why not spend some time enjoying a spot of tennis on the tennis courts? Game..set...and match! There are those old classic horseshoes, or perhaps you want to bring some kit down and enjoy a game of baseball, or football? Nothing like a fun bat or a kick around in the sun!
City Park also has two beautiful lakes that you can enjoy, and those little ones will love the two playgrounds that they can swing, climb, play and hide in!
Fancy spending some time as a family enjoying a lovely lunch? Great, because City Park has two picnic sites just for families like you who want to relax and take in the atmosphere as you tuck in.
There's no reason why you can't get a bit of history into your experience, with the historical monuments. A nice way to discuss the history of the city with the family, and get them interested in learning more.
A beautiful park within a city? Why not! Nature is calling...and it's calling your name!
How much does it cost?
When can we go?
5am to 11pm
All year round
The zoo and the museum are great places to take the students for that extra education.
The picnic spots are perfect to bring your own lunch! NO glass containers.
Carry bottled water as it's important to stay hydrated.
Any Top Tips?
Don't feed the wildlife in the park, and dogs are allowed by must be kept on a leash.
Doing our bit
Parks and recreation love keeping the park well looked after for all who visit, so help them out and pick up after yourselves! .
Need a little extra help?
The park is quite level, but if you have any questions regarding special needs, just give them a call to discuss.
Don't forget those hats and sunscreen on those hot days!.

City Park is a great place to bring your family and have a great time. We rented a 6 person bike/cart, have gone on many runs there and enjoyed a plethora of other great activities. They have a wonderful zoo and a great museum! How can anyone not love this park? There are geese and other wildlife in the park, but there are geese everywhere around Denver where there is water, so I don't have an issue with them.

I've lived across from City Park for about a year now. It's a huge space, with lots of areas for recreation with tennis courts and a soccer pitch. Biggest drawback it the amount of geese, and waste from the geese. The running trails are great, as are the benches around the pond, and access to the Zoo.
