Washington Park is a popular central “small town” Denver neighborhood and 166-acre public urban park. The park is beloved for its historic buildings, lakes, ten tennis courts, lawns, large flower gardens, recreation center, bike and walking trails. It’s a recreational mecca for Denverites. Joggers, cyclists, dog walkers and parents with strollers congregate here year ‘round. In spring and summer, volleyball nets are set up and open to the public. Competitive tennis ladders include singles, doubles and mixed doubles. Wintertime brings cross country skiis and snowshoes out.
