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:

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.

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.

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.
