City Center at Englewood

City Center at Englewood


This is not a conventional park with a playground but it sure is fun and has plenty of eye-candy. Sculptures and whimsical art work are scattered throughout. Located at the old Cinderella City, the mall is a distant memory. Laid out over several acres complete with restaurants, a pub, coffee shop, quaint shops, a library, the light rail and loft style apartments, this is a cool little neighborhood. For the kids there is a super-fun water feature located around the crown jewel a 40 foot fountain.

It would be fun to start here, hit the light rail either direction and have a fun journey for the family.

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.

Barnum Park Denver
This is a park on a hill just outside the downtown area, it is located just west of Federal and just south of 6th Ave. It offers a fantastic view of downtown Denver. There is a play structure but it is pretty old and run down there is plenty of grass to have a nice picnic. Located right next to the park is a fantastic recreation center swimming pool complete with new styled water features. Did you know Denver residents under 18 get to swim free at Denver pools this Summer? Hurry, the outdoor pools close soon.
