A major neighborhood of Denver and one of its largest urban parks, Washington Park provides a beautiful slice of nature in the middle of the city. Spread out over more than 150 acres, it’s home to beautiful flower gardens and two lakes shaded by tall trees and beside open meadows. Initially designed in the French country style, the park has kept its historic architecture and thoughtful layout. Sculptures throughout reflect the city’s history, while one of the flower gardens is an exact replica of George Washington’s garden at Mount Vernon.
Many flock to Washington Park to take part in outdoor activities, from cycling to jogging or paddle boating on the lakes. There’s also a large playground area for children, with the entirety of the park being family-friendly. Sports enthusiasts will appreciate the many recreational facilities, which include tennis courts, roller blading areas, a basketball court, and spots for horseshoe and lawn bowling. There’s also a recreation center in the park with fitness classes, volleyball, and swimming.
Washington Park is at the center of Denver life, beloved by the community and named a “Great Public Space of America.”
