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.

Westlands Park Greenwood VillageClimbing Structure
The park is new, fun, huge and offers plenty for all! It is sprawling, with playgrounds, pavilions, an awesome water feature, paths, fields, and a super-secret, super cool treehouse! You can spend the entire day here. The playground features several different play areas, with ramps, tunnels, bridges, poles, slides, lookout tower, silly swings, regular swings, sooo many features! Next to the playground areas is the really cool “treehouse”. It is a wooden, 2-stroy structure complete with bridges, lookout areas, and a ladder. Hidden amongst huge shade trees, a must see. Further down the path is a pavilion available for rent and past that, there is a water feature. This is a really fun one with a “creek”, waterfall and other areas of fun. It is unique.

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!

A classic, old school park. This park is so nice because it is surrounded by huge shade trees, it is so nice and relaxing. There is a huge open grass area in addition to a play area. The playground consists of baby swings, swings, play structure (not that big) with 2 slides, a merry-go-round, a sand digger and other fun stuff.

Lots of picnic tables scattered throughout this park. There is also a really neat, rustic library right next to the park. If you have time, head on in, find a cozy spot and read a book to the little ones, I have fantasies of living in this library. Go see it and you will know what I mean. All in all, it’s a great, little park. Two hours is probably ample time to enjoy, definitely not an all day park.

The trees provide shade for those hot summer days.
