Denver’s largest urban park covers 330 acres on the east side of uptown. Established in 1881, it retains Victorian touches. The park encompasses two lakes (with boat rentals and fishing), athletic fields, jogging and walking trails, a free children’s water feature, playgrounds, tennis courts, picnic areas, and an 18-hole municipal golf course. In summer, there are concerts and other special events. The park is also the site of the Denver Zoo and the Denver Museum of Nature & Science, including its IMAX Theater.
