Washington Park Tours and Activities
Read MoreShow Less
A major neighborhood of Denver and one of its largest urban parks, Washington Park provides a beautiful slice of nature in the middle of the city. Spread out over more than 150 acres, it’s home to beautiful flower gardens and two lakes shaded by tall trees and beside open meadows. Initially designed in the French country style, the park has kept its historic architecture and thoughtful layout. Sculptures throughout reflect the city’s history, while one of the flower gardens is an exact replica of George Washington’s garden at Mount Vernon.
Many flock to Washington Park to take part in outdoor activities, from cycling to jogging or paddle boating on the lakes. There’s also a large playground area for children, with the entirety of the park being family-friendly. Sports enthusiasts will appreciate the many recreational facilities, which include tennis courts, roller blading areas, a basketball court, and spots for horseshoe and lawn bowling. There’s also a recreation center in the park with fitness classes, volleyball, and swimming.
Washington Park is at the center of Denver life, beloved by the community and named a “Great Public Space of America.”
The park is located in south central Denver, and is easily accessible via car or public transportation, bicycle or on foot from downtown (parking is available, but can be crowded.) Bike trails at Exposition Avenue, Marion St. and Louisiana Avenue connect the park with the city. Keep your eyes and ears open for free concerts, which happen often in the summertime. There’s also lots of shopping and dining on nearby Old South Gaylord Street.
