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.

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.

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.

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.

Cornerstone Park Playground

Cornerstone Park Playground

This is a family favorite, we can spend a few hours here, especially since Belleview park is directly across the street and accessible via an underground tunnel. This is also located just behind Colorado Journey putt putt, so you may want to work that in to your visit.

Cornerstone Park Sprayground

Cornerstone Park Sprayground

The spray-ground consists of a huge flower that shoots water out intermittently. There are also holes all over shot water all around. The play-sets are separated, one for the older kids and one for the younger children. one unique thing about this park is the sand pit, complete with equipment to play and experiment with sand. I like the surface they have under the big playground, it is that non-heat foamy stuff. Plenty of open grassy fields, basketball courts, and covered picnic tables. If you go in the summer, plan on getting there early if you want shade, a huge coveted part of the park, since it is scarce.
