  • I love this park! Huge and spacious. Always very busy. It is a great place for a run or walk. The sunset view is beautiful.
  • One of my favorite places in Denver. Played volleyball in the park here for years. Great place for running and other physical activity. Also very good for families with a nice playground area and lots of place to walk with kids.
  • Huge beautiful park, well maintained, lots of fun for kids, perfect place for a jog or to ride bikes.
  • Gorgeous park. All the birds. All the people. Great fun, especially when the flower gardens bloom. Great way to spend an afternoon.
  • Beautiful park with a lot of walking trails. Terrible parking. All the portable potties are filthy, they don't lock, and none of them have toilet paper.
