Features
Free, Popular with locals, Family-friendly

For decades, Washington Park has been the go-to destination for Denverites who want to picnic, read a book, or play volleyball. Made up of two lakes, dirt and paved trails, plenty of open grassy areas, and dozens of shady picnic tables, it's ultra-popular—if the sun is out, Wash Park will be busy. Families should park in the lot at Exposition and Downing for easy access to the paddle boats on Smith Lake and the park's large playground. It's also a top choice for a quick run; no matter the weather you'll find Denver's running faithful completing the 2.6 mile-loop.
