Default Best place to have a picnic in Denver

We just moved to Highlands Ranch and are still in the exploration stages! We would like to have a picnic tomorrow with our 10 month old daughter. Where would be a good place to have one? She has never been in grass before (where we lived before had fire ants in the grass), so I want her to experience that. I would also like a place with some shade. I don't mind a little drive, since I don't know the area well anyway.

Any suggestions?

Cindy

Why not at City Park? It's a large area, LOTS of grass, 2 lakes, paths to stretch your legs, or just watch the world go by. It's bordered by Colorado Blvd to the East, York St to the West, E 17th Ave to the South and E 26th to the North. Have a look here for more details: Denver City Park | Colorado Walks

There are many parks in HR - on the east side there is Heritage just south of University on Quebec. In the mddle is Civic Center park - next to the Library & on the west side try Redstone on Town Center Drive between Lucent & Sante Fe.

Default wash park

Washington Park is one of the nicest parks in Denver. If you go 1-25 north to University Blvd north to Exepition(sp)west, you will run right into it. There is a great ice cream parlor on University, right before you turn. Homemade! Have fun!

I Second that. A great park, two lakes, with lots of activities. Also, great play ground for kids by the lake

One of our most favorite things to do was to take a short drive to Kitteredge, and have lunch by the stream at Dick's Hickory Dock, a cute little barbeque place.

26220 Highway 74
Kittredge, CO 80457
(303) 674-9612

Just down the street on the left hand side is a cute little park. We would take the kids to play there after. It is just a gorgeous country setting, with the mountains around you, and just a half hour drive from town. Those were good times.

If you live in Highlands Ranch, call the South Suburban Rec center for picnic areas closest to you. That way you can enjoy your neighborhood and not use gas.

They are nice and old enough to have grass and trees too.
