The basics

Denver City Park’s size, central location, and numerous attractions make it one of the most popular outdoor areas for visitors and locals alike. Numerous paths cater exclusively to pedestrians, and boathouses on Ferril and Duck lakes rent paddleboats for those who’d like to get out on the water. While the park is easily visited independently, travelers can also see the park’s highlights while zipping through on a guided scooter tour of Denver, with other stops at Coors Field, Union Station, Colorado State Capitol, and the Governor’s Mansion.
