Read MoreShow Less
Denver’s 314-acre City Park is the largest park in the city, built in 1882 following the tradition of New York City’s Central Park and later used as the site of the 1893 World’s Fair. Today, this beautiful urban green space boasts a number of attractions, including the Denver Zoo, the Denver Museum of Nature and Science and a pair of lakes, complete with a boathouse where visitors can rent paddleboats. Ferril Lake is the location of the iconic Prismatic Fountain, a newly renovated centerpiece that lights up the nights with brilliant, ever-changing displays of light and water.
Not only is the park itself a highlight of a trip to Denver, but the surrounding City Park neighborhood is well worth exploring as well. Nearby Colfax Avenue boasts a bevy of hip shops and restaurants. At the north end of City Park, just across East 23rd Avenue, the public City Park Golf Course offers 18 holes near the heart of the city.
City Park sits east of downtown Denver, bounded by York Street to the west, Colorado Boulevard to the east and East 23rd Avenue from north to south. The park grounds are open year round from 5 a.m. until 11 p.m. daily.
