Definitely the crown jewel of parks in Denver. I've been coming to this park my whole life and have run, biked, bladed, and walked around this park. It is very dog friendly and somewhat people friendly. However there is a small parking lot located near the big pretty garden right off of Exposition. It is also located near the water area where you can pedal boats and the all kinds of pedal bikes and fun things to move around in at the park. The park was definitely busy, but not crowded. There were tons of people with dogs and my social dog made it hard to getting much of a walk as she wanted to stop and greet everyone we met. Aside for walking, there were sand volleyball courts and there were a lot of people there and lots of kids playing all over the park. Parking is easy and free on the neighborhood streets adjacent to the park. I would highly recommended a visit next time you are in Denver.
