Denver’s close proximity to stunning natural landscapes is just one of the many reasons we love to call this city home.

For the days when you can’t schedule a full trip out to the mountains, there’s a beautiful oasis just minutes away at Washington Park. Just south of central Denver, this beloved park occupies 165 acres of winding jogging paths, peaceful gardens, and even two large lakes. Spend your time reading and relaxing in the grass or boosting your adrenaline with time on the tennis courts or out on a boat on the lake—here, you can enjoy your vacation your way, with tons of different activities and space to spread out. Often compared to the Boston Common or New York’s Central Park, this beautiful park is loved by both locals and visitors and whether you have time for a long lazy hangout or a quick walk, you’ll make memories to last a lifetime.
