In town with beautiful views of the state capitol and mountains. Just a short walk to the 16th street mall. Nice area to kick up your feet and enjoy a snack in the sunny colorado weather.

As others have noted, Denver seems to have an exceptional number of homeless, many of whom spend a lot of time in this park. We walked through on a Sunday morning, and it was not a particularly comfortable visit. Perhaps it would be nicer during...More

There is a minimal amount of street parking at meters (average 2 hour max). Best bet if you're going to stay for awhile, park at one of the nearby surface lots or if you don't mind hoofing it, there is a parking garage at... More
