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.

Cherry Knolls Park
This is a popular park in a popular area, just a block over from the Streets at Southglenn. Located behind the Safeway on the SE corner of Arapahoe and University. The park is located in a little valley with Bear Creek running through it, same with the metro-wide bike path. There is a baseball field and grassy fields. The playground includes cute interactive games all around, even find the tracks – find animal “tracks” and match them to the diagram to see what the animal is. There are baby swings, bridges, monkey bars, slides. The creek proves to be a fun place for the children. It is rocky I strongly suggest water shoes or sandals while in the creek. I’ve seen kids catch crawfish in there!

Bear Creek Playground

This is a huge family favorite – so much space, so many different areas.  The new playground is so big, sprawled out, fun!  Of course, this big attraction is the big sombrero slide – I even loved it as a kid.  There are bridges, walkways, interactive areas.  Also, tire swings, baby swings and regular swings.

Beside the playground there is a “sprayground”, tons of open grassy spaces and of course, Bear Creek runs right thru it.  It is also along the bike path, take a walk, cross a bridge or play in the creek.  You could literally spend hours here, bring water and food.
