Lakeside Amusement Park
Looking for a fun filled with rides, picnics and yummy treats? Head to Lakeside Amusement Park located at I-70 and Sheridan. Admission is unbelievably cheap! You can bring your own picnic in and the lines are short! It’s like turning back time too, a blast and tons of eye candy for any nostalgic person!

They have plenty of picnic tables and pavilions, it’s a great place for a birthday party. It’s right next to a lake too, gorgeous views with the Rockies as the backdrop.

How does this sound? A haven where you and your family can eat, play, and learn together or apart.

The Village at Edgewater has opened in Edgewater and is sure to be a hit! Sure we have seen indoor playgrounds pop up but as far as food and childrens programs they lacked a completeness.

The village promises to deliver, healthy food, real food, not out of a microwave or food warmer.  They have breakfast, lunch and dinner.  The menu really looks amazing.


The playarea is 1500 sq. ft!  The tables surround the play area, allowing parents to eat and chat while their children play.


They will be offering Music, Art, and COOKING Classes!  You can take them with or without your kiddos.

Friday nights is Family Night featuring different entrees every week!

You can purchase monthly memberships or pay as you go.

The Village at Edgewater is located at 5700 W. 25th (at Fenton)

Paramount Park is a smaller but convenient, quiet park located between 27th and 29th off of Kipling. A playground is surrounded by grass fields. A lot of big trees provide abundant shade. There is a nice basketball court area, baseball field, horseshoes and covered picnic tables.

Anderson Park is popular for folks from all around the NW Denver area.  It is a huge park with lots to offer.  There is a Recreation Center, skatepark, playground, sports fields, a creek, shade trees, and covered tables.  We like it for a nice walk around, a lot of different activities going on throughout the park.
