Park Amenities

With the Rocky Mountains as a backdrop, Denver's park system connects people throughout the city with the great outdoors. Denver parks are an intersection of nature and urban environments; of historical design and innovation; of public and private partnerships; and of arts and culture.

The park system serves the city's diverse neighborhoods with expansive open green spaces, pocket parks, tree-lined streets, historic parkways and regional trails. 

Denver Parks & Recreation operates two bike parks:

  • Ruby Hill Park
  • Trestle Skills Course at Barnum North

Disc Golf courses are located at:

  • 42nd & Libson Park
  • Paco Sanchez Park

Denver Mountain Parks make up a cohesive system of significant lands connected by watersheds, forests, sensitive ecosystems, trails, and scenic drives. Each park has its own distinct character, but the system as a whole shares an audience, uses, geography, character, and historic integrity. Learn more.
