This park reminds me of Mission Peak in the Bay Area. The wide open grassland covered hills do not offer shelter. The park is accessible from north, south, east and west sides of the Green Mountain. I have a measly mile stroll to the south entrance, with network of trails of sufficient mileage for an avid hiker. The highest peak rises above the Rocky Mountain foothills exposing picturesque panoramas of the front range peaks including Pikes Peak.

This is a beautiful park with a lake and walking paths. It's a bit more of an adult park than a kid park in the sense that there is no playground. My young kid has fun pretend fishing and running around. I've seen people fishing for 'reel' ? too. I don't know if they caught anything.

1.6 mile point-to-point trail - Provides a taste of the country in the city, connecting downtown Denver with the foothills of the Rockies

Great place to access the Bear Creek trail or just go for a nice walk on either paved or dirt paths. We did a lot of our marathon training on this trail during the winter and it was usually plowed within 24-48 hours of a large snow event. It's also great for running with a stroller as there are few road crossings and usually plenty of room for passing bikes. Just be careful on a couple of the underpasses where there are blind corners and occasionally some broken glass.
