This one scored huge, HUGE on the kids scale of FUN!  A huge, wooden labyrinth of bridges, stairs, tunnels, slides, so many structures.  Monkey bars, swings, balance beams, climbing nets, zip line, tire swing, you name – they have it!  There is a lake with paddle boat rentals, tennis courts, a second playground and a spray-ground.

City Park Denver

City Park is located next to the Denver Zoo and Museum of Nature and Science.

There are over 330 acres to enjoy at this park.  The wood playground is the best!

The huge negatives: No flushing bathrooms, no drinking fountains.

Beautiful Dillon, Colorado, we love this town!

Dillon Colorado

By far one of the coolest playgrounds in Colorado.  The equipment is diverse and extensive, it is fantastic.

But the best thing about this playground:

Lake Dillon

They have positioned the park and the picnic tables to take advantage of this amazing view.  LOVE IT!

We highly recommend Marina Park.  Pack a picnic and head west on I-70 just about an hour from Denver.  You can also rent boats at the marina, eat at some of the breweries and also go shopping at the outlets in Silverthorne.

The Lake, Dock

Another family favorite, this park has something for EVERYONE. Sprawled out over several acres and includes a lake, 3 playgrounds, a plethora of covered picnic tables, skate park, water feature, basketball, tennis, softball, baseball, batting cages, sand volleyball, grassy fields everywhere. This park is located near Southwest Plaza and there are plenty of restaurants, shops and other places to visit while you are in the area. This park hosts festivals, outdoor concerts, and more.   The Columbine Memorial is located here too.  You can also catch some really cool kite flyers and riders. There are plenty of paths throughout the park to get you where you want to go.   A library is located near the main entrance , be sure to check out their children’s section, it has gorgeous artwork covering the walls.
