We spent the afternoon meandering the Denver City Park and experiencing its many venues. We even rented a bicycle carriage for the 5 of us--what fun!! It was lots of fun for adults and kids.

My son and DIL live on City Park. You have this great park with walking, ponds, biking, playgrounds and more. You also have the Zoo and the Science Museum and so much more. Great city park and amenities.

Convenient location in a nice neighborhood. Lovely place to walk around the lake. Lots of couples and dogs. You can golf there too.
