Loved this park! Come here on a clear blue day and be amazed by the stunning views. They keep the park pretty clean as well which is a plus.

We were there on a beautiful day. We walked around the lake and over to the zoo. Many great panoramic pictures of the Denver skyline with faint mountains behind it. Interesting cormorant rookery and we even saw a giant pelican!
