Tips from locals
The Central Park of Denver! Also right next to the Denver zoo and Science Museum!
Just a few blocks south, City Park has ~3 miles of trails to go for a stroll or a jog. Check out the Denver Museum of Nature & Science or the Denver Zoo while you're there, or keep heading south and go explore Colfax Ave.
Beautiful outdoor space with spectacular views of the Denver skyline. In the summer there are free jazz concerts every Sunday and paddle board rental in the lake. The park also has a public golf course, and is home to the Denver Zoo, Natural History Museum and iMax Theater.
Denver's largest park, has several lakes, spectacular mountain views, a public golf course, flower gardens and a hiking/jogging trail that is exactly one mile high.
Home to the Denver Zoo, Denver Museum of Nature & Science, and trails around the lake!

“Lions and tigers and bears – and so much more, on lovely grounds make the Denver Zoo one of the most popular zoos in America. Go underwater with polar bears at Northern Shores, or eyeball-to-eyeball with a gorilla in Primate Panorama. Predator Ridge recreates the plains of Africa with a pride of lions, while Tropical Discovery is rainforest teeming with crocodiles and gila monsters. ”
