Denver, Colorado Map

Nice for walking, skating or leisurely cycling. Although the interstate is very close, this park still has a lovely view of the mountains and Lakeside Amusement park.

Not much to see...small creek and pond but the rest of the trail is surrounded by buildings. Easy hike.

Great trees, scenery, and people.

Nice quaint location with pretty sights. Mostly runners, families and friendly dogs. I will definitely come here again!

super easy walk, beautiful views all the way around. can be overly crowded though.

Nice short, easy little loop around the lake. There are little side paths that go closer to the water, too. We walked our dogs there on a Sunday afternoon and there were at least a couple dozen or so people, but not enough to be super crowded. There were a couple of people fishing, too. There was at least one big trash bin available for throwing out doggie bags, which was appreciated.

Lots of people but we saw a cormorant! Cool park for an urban outing. But urban outings aren't the best.

Nice, flat walk around the lake. Weather was great so there were lots of people out walking, running & biking but it still wasn't too bad. If I lived closer to this I'd go here all the time, but I'm not sure I'd drive that far for a walk in a park.

saw 1st bald eagle in the wild
