Washington Park Professional Guide
Detailed Trail Description from our Guidebook
"Busy. That’s the first word that comes to mind when I think of how to describe Washington Park. Big. That’s the next word that comes to mind for this 165-acre park just south of downtown Denver. It is certainly a lively place with room for almost every kind of recreation you can think of, during any time of year.
Locals call it Wash Park, and it is probably Denver’s most popular park given all the amenities in one place with two big lakes, a pond (fishing allowed in all of them), flower gardens, multiuse trails, boat rentals, benches and picnic areas, tennis courts, a large grassy meadow, trees for shade and brilliant fall color, mountain views, historic buildings—and it is all easy walking distance from some very good restaurants and shops. Note: Cars share the roads with pedestrians and cyclists within the park. Washington Park is officially open daily, 6 a.m.–11 p.m."
