City Park: The Largest Urban Park in Denver and a Great Neighborhood!

City Park, a 330-acre public park, rests in the middle of the City Park neighborhood. It’s the largest urban park in Denver, hosting both the Museum of Nature and Science and the Denver Zoo.

With frequent family friendly community events and expansive fields and lakes, City Park is a great place for families with kids of all ages.

City Park is also a great area for young professionals looking for urban homes near downtown, yet in a quality neighborhood of their own.

What City Park Has to Offer You

City Park is just over a mile east of downtown, with quick access to public transportation. So, whether you prefer to bike, drive or use public transit, you can make it downtown very quickly.

In City Park itself, there are frequent community events, including:

  • Jazz in the Park one evening a week during the summer months
  • Food truck events
  • Charity walks and runs

This is all in addition to the Museum of Nature and Science, the Denver Zoo and the opportunities that a mile-long park has to offer to all of the neighborhood’s residents.

The southern boundary of City Park is Colfax Avenue, one of Denver’s main strips, home to bars, restaurants, brewpubs, local shops and more.

Some local Colfax Ave. favorites include:

  • Tattered Cover bookstore
  • Twist & Shout record store
  • The Three Lions Pub – modeled after some of London’s best

If you’re looking for an exciting neighborhood with urban outdoor opportunities close to downtown Denver, City Park may be the place for you.
