Harvard Gulch Park is an oldie but a goodie.

Another park I always enjoyed is Montclair Park

Each of these parks is quite different from the other, but both have history and are not nearly as overrun with yuppies as Wash Park.

My personal favorite for a quick dog walk or to play catch with the kids was "Little" Cheesman, between 7th and 8th and Williams and High, across the street from Big Cheesman.

Finally, there is City of Brest Park, and for a colorful dose of history, check out Four Mile Park.

Except for Harvard, which is technically Denver but towards the southern side, all of the parks I have mentioned are true Denver parks, quite close to the city center.

Crestmoor Park in SE Denver, at 1st and Monaco is a very nice Denver Park and I believe it's been there for a long time.

There are tons, what are you in need of with them? Some are great to drive by but hang out, tough areas. Barnum and Ruby Hill have great views, Curtis Park is very historic as well as Sloan's Lake, Berekley and Rocky Mountain, but it just depends on what your needs are. I grew up by Sloan's lake and can think of many near there. Some are only a block big while others have lakes in the middle.

On this link you can find them - Home Page

They boast - Welcome to Denver, Colorado where our parks and recreation facilities are unrivaled in the Rocky Mountain West. Denver enjoys one of the most diverse, expansive, and historic parks and recreation systems in the nation.

Well, Cheesman was once a cemetery--and not everybody got moved out.
I found some cool old bottles at Kittredge Park, in the Montclair neighborhood.
