City Park Neighborhood Highlights

City Park and City Park West are home of the Denver Zoo and the Denver Museum of Nature and Science, which are two of the city’s most popular attractions. City Park also has two lakes: Duck Lake and Ferril Lake. Boating and paddle boats are permitted in the park. For special events you can rent the picturesque boathouse. The interactive fountain, one of the most popular features of the park, is displayed during summer months when City Park also hosts a series of free concerts. The City Park Golf Course lies just to the north of City Park.

The Denver Museum of Nature and Science was built in 1908. Its location on the high ground at the eastern edge of the park provided the museum with some of the best views of Downtown Denver and the mountains that lie beyond it.
