Boats can be rented at the boat pavilion at one of the park's two lakes.
Bored in Denver? Have some free fun by catching one of the dozens of league volleyball games that fill the park with up to 1,000 nets during the summer months.
Sit under a tree.
watch out for duck poop
Nearby, there’s always volleyball going on, so quickly watch YouTube clips of Top Gun’s volleyball scenes to get psyched, and then slam the ball in people’s grills.
The park includes several trails, including one that goes around the perimeter of the park, tennis courts, a lawn bowling/croquet field, and two playgrounds.
Best place to walk your doggies!
If you actually call it "Washington Park" you don't keep it local.
Walk at night with your favorite person
walk the park with a friend twice burn 528 calories and have a great catch up session. My girlfriends and i love to do this.
Great place to run a 5k
The Washington Park Grille is just 5 blocks East of the park and is the perfect spot to wind down after time at the park!
Many Dave Matthews fans, Suburu drivers and breeder dog owners jogging in circles.
Not quite Central Park New York or Golden Gate Park in San Fran, but next to these, it's likely one of the best city parks in the country.
Great place! Nice and clean until the aurora people come...
The sprinklers go off at 7:30am. Don't get wet. :)
Watch put for bicycles and speed skaters. They'll knock you over and never look back! The more spandex they're wearing the meaner they are.
No flash photography at the Stegosaurus breeding grounds, please.
Check out all the baby ducklings and geese! Also, the crawdads are creepy...
So much fun to watch the Volleyball of the Rockies nets go up! Just watch for wild balls!!
Steer clear of the duck crap. My dog likes eating it and would likely give opposite advice,
Rent the spacious boathouse pavilion at Smith Lake for your special occasion!
The park is also known for its largest Victorian Style perennial flower garden. The garden includes an elliptical lawn and 54 flower beds in an informal arrangement.
The park was first developed by Architect Reinhard Scheutze in 1899. The 165 acres of park, is a beautiful blend of historic and contemporary styles of architecture.
Come for a flash mob, stay for volleyball and a BBQ. This is a Denver gem with lots of people and lots of fun.
Ultimate frisbee pick up every Monday and Wednesday from 530 til dark, and every Saturday around noon during the summer.
This is a great park, but it needs more Aurora folks to class it up. :)
Shoes optional, this park is well maintained
Run or walk in the Turkey trot before you stuff yourself on Thanksgiving. Washington Park is one of Denver's loveliest outdoor places.
watch the sunset on the northeast side of the lake.
A great hang out spot during the summers! You can find people here playing volleyball, kickball, or just hanging out and barbecuing.
Due to its welcoming appearance and unique characteristics, Washington Park was designated as one of the “Great Public Spaces in America” by the American Planning Association in the year 2012.
inner loop is almost always clear in the winter - perfect for interval workouts and 'poodle guy' sightings
Well if it isn't Ultra5280 HQ across the street at Wash Park!
2.6 miles once around
Hang out and drink beer with your friends and all the strangers you meet.
Great place for a bike ride.
Parking is generally available on the north-west side of the park. I've had good luck there this summer. Now, don't everyone go park there and spoil it :)
Lately, the park is a little short on bathrooms. Lots of porta-potties, otherwise, just the Rec Center. Overall, the best park in Denver!
It's always fun to visit during the day, but one of the best ways to experience the park in summer is to have an evening picnic. The crowds leave as you arrive and pretty soon you have it to yourself.
Best park in Denver
Any news on the dead body found in the lake?
Don't look in the lakes. You may find a dead person.

Great spot to run in Denver
One of my top 3 favorite parks in Denver... If not my absolute fave
Great area for running! Love racing here!
Love riding our bike or running around the park. #denver #peakpropertiesgroup #healthlybody
I don't care for much here but Wash Perk is a nice coffee shop.
If you are young, healthy and fun and you live in the city of Denver, you are probably here at least occasionally. Free tennis courts, basketball courts, flower gardens, two lakes, etc.
