Nice place for a walk. Walked the inner and outer loop on a cool fall day with light snow. The big open areas are good spots for running the dogs or playing ultimate frisbee.

Best place to run in Denver with sneaky vert over a number of laps. Can get muddy when rainy. Watch for bad drivers on their phones at crosswalks, most people don’t realize it’s pedestrian-priority.

Great, safe city park walk. Lots of runners and dog walkers. Everyone polite and courteous.

It's a beautiful park, but this specific route jumps from path to path without much logic.

The area is clean and open. But honestly, this is more of a picnic area than a trail. The pillars make it a fun visit and a very cool photo spot.

Just a basic park

It’s a very nice walk that you would not expect in Denver. Great views of the Rockies. Added bonus, start from you hotel or Airbnb and it can be a nice 4-6 mile walk through the city.

Beautiful and open-space park in the city, just East of the Denver Botanical Gardens. Great view of the mountains, especially from the elevated Greek Parthenon structure.

It really isn't a "trail" but around the park in the middle of the busy streets and apartments.

Pretty neighborhood run. However, too short to call it a trail. Just another "trail' marked off from the list in CO.

Great people watching location and interesting history behind the park. Decades ago it used to be a cemetery and when they were repurposing the land for park use they weren’t able to find about 1,000 unmarked graves. As you walk on the park soil you are probably stepping over someone’s remains so tread lightly!

Cheeseman is a nice area. Lots of people out walking, playing games and walking/playing with their dogs. The large grass field is awesome, and has much less goose poop than City Park.

This is a small but beautiful city park. If you want to take some snapshots with very beautiful landscaped and lush flowers in the background or hit a playground, this is perfect.

just a small park for kids and dogs. Nothing moderate about it....its flat

Great city park near downtown. Sidewalk area is open to joggers and walkers only. Bikes only permitted on the road. Many times of the year, they close the park to cars just to let the people enjoy without worrying.

Just the right amount of local park.

Nothing too scintillating scenery-wise, an urban park with paved and gravel trail options for foot traffic, and some nice surrounding neighborhoods allow you to extend your jaunt further, if you would like a change in scenery. That said, Cheesman Park is prime people-watching and seems to gather people from all over Denver, and the green is very pleasant. I'd recommend you stay off the gravel path if you're walking as the runners prefer it.
