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.

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.

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.

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.
