You can see all the beautiful sights City Park offers including monuments, skyline views and beautiful greenery. For the seafaring, rent one of the many options for exploring the lake, including the water trike.
When it is time to eat, settle in near the historic City Park Pavilion. From there you have views of the garden and the lake giving you a serene setting almost as beautiful as mom. Finish off your day at the Denver Zoo, where you can see the momma animals caring for their young during this spring season.
