This is a nice enough park, and they try to keep it clean and nice, but it is over run with geese. They are everywhere. Jazz in the Park on Sunday evenings is nice .

I've been walking Denver City Park almost everyday now since the first of January. The park crew keep it very well maintained as it must be difficult with the number of geese around and the number of visitors with dogs. Most people are pretty good...More

In my opinion, City Park isn't as nice as Wash Park or Cheesman Park, and certainly not as popular. There are more statues and fountains and things, but it's not as active of a park, which is what I prefer. Jazz in the park on...More

For over forty years I have been enjoying City Park. The Museum of Nature and Science, the Denver Zoo and the golf course (under a complete revision) are nationally rated as tat the top. Even the messy geese are beautiful to watch!

This is one of Denver's older parks. It is off of 18th between York and Colorado Blvd. You can enter the park a few ways, perhaps the easiest is at the Museum of Natural History off of 20th and Colorado Blvd. You are looking for...More
