    Formerly the best park in Denver before Denver Parks and Recreation created a mandatory permit system that limits the # of people that can play organized sports. Now no one goes to Wash Park anymore.

    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.
