I would say the Botanic Gardens, but you need a few hours to really enjoy the place, and there won't be much growing at that point in time anyway. If you need a little relaxation after all that running around, I would suggest Washington Park on the east side or Sloan's Lake Park on the west side.

Thanks I will look into that. Is there a place in the mountains right near Denver that has hiking or running trails?

Sloan's Lake is nice. I do not live in that area but when I am close to it or on a weekend I park there and walk all away around that lake. It is a great walk and I love it! Great views on a nice day too with downtown and the mountains to the west.

As for mountain trails, I will let other make suggestions (I do most of mine in national parks) but always check them out before coming since all locations depends on weather/snow conditions.

Thanks much. I will check out this Sloan Lake and see where it is. I will definitely try ( I say TRY) to get to red rocks. Since there is no real public trans that goes over there, I might have to skip until next time.

Sloan's Lake is just north of Colfax in extreme west Denver. Bring some bread to feed the ducks!

Yes but do it only when park 'officials' is not present as they forbid feeding the ducks and can fine people (never did it as far as I know).

LOL! We often fed the ducks when we lived there. It was as if they (the ducks) expected it. Never got fined.
