The guy who was able to help with planning New York’s famous Central Park also had a hand in creating WA park, or Wash Park as it is colloquially called by Denverites.
For outdoor fanatics who live in or visit Denver, Wash park is a place to truly get lost and locate your peace.
Shaped pretty much like a giant rectangle, its basic shape is relatively simple. Yet, the adventures to be had are abundant and range from all-day treks to a quick meal in between meetings! If you happen to love gardens (who doesn’t?), you definitely are in for a treat. WA park has a pretty good amount of them. On the south side, near lake Windermere, there is a garden that strives to replicate the garden that Mrs. George Washing enjoyed at her own place. Pretty close to the other lake in the park, yes, you read that right, there are two lakes in WA Park. There is a garden with all sorts of walkways that wind you through the enjoyable blooms. Perhaps Spring is the most lovely time, or maybe summer, to enjoy the hours spent in WA park. If you appreciate running, there is a running/jogging/walking trail that is a couple of miles or so! Lace up your trainers and deliver it a go, and don’t hesitate to bring your fur baby along. Dogs are absolutely welcome in the park. When marijuana was made legal in Colorado, Denver enjoyed a pretty decent tourism boom. It isn’t the lenient cannabis laws that bring people back regularly though. It is definitely the natural beauty and the warm, welcoming people of Denver that make people want to live there and visit all the time.
