Burn Off The Avocado Toast & Mimosas In These Five Denver Parks

Washington Park

Known to the locals as "Wash Park", you get over 150 acres of space to roam and enjoy the elegant gardens and two lakes. The wide variety of different flora makes Wash Park a beautiful place to enjoy in every season.

James A. Bible Park

Surrounded by the High Line Canal, this large park offers dirt and paved pathways that are ideal for enjoying the outdoors in an urban setting. If you get winded while working off the Bloody Marys, have a seat and watch one of the many team sports events that play here.

Rosamond Park

Located in south Denver, Rosamond Park gives walkers the pleasure of enjoying manicured lawns and gardens along the Goldsmith Gulch Trail. There's also a large playground that is sure to delight any children you may have in tow.

City Park

No doubt about it, City Park's residence next to the Denver Zoo and the Museum of Nature and Science makes this park an ideal place to not only take a long walk but to take in culture as well. If you're looking to stay outside, walk along the Ferril and Duck Lakes. Or even better, get on the water in a pelican-shaped paddleboat!

Paul A. Hentzell Park

Situated along Cherry Creek, right off S. Havana St., Paul A. Hentzell Park boasts 70-plus acres of grasslands, wildflowers, and trees for you to take in at your leisure. 

Nothing tops off a heavy brunch of cinnamon swirl pancakes and foamy lattes better than a casual saunter along any of Denver's park trails. Are there other parks around Denver that we missed on our list? Share them with us in the comments below.
