You can take your time right in the heart of the city with Denver City Park, or marvel at what nature created at the stunning Red Rocks Park just outside the city limit. You can play sports at Bear Valley Park, or picnic at Barnum Park.
You can even get those kids active at Denver's state park - Cherry Creek!
Of course, nature comes in all shapes and sizes just like Denver Botanic Gardens where kids can play in one of the top five botanic gardens in the country!
Let's not forget that Denver is near the foothills to the impressive Rocky Mountains...and THAT is nature at it's finest! Get those walking shoes on kids, it's time to get into the great outdoors!
