CITY PARK
A PARK AND A NEIGHBORHOOD
Welcome to City Park, Denver.
City Park is both an urban park and a neighborhood. The park spans across 330 acres of green space in east-central Denver, and contains the Denver Zoo, the Denver Museum of Natural Science, Ferril and Duck Lakes as well as a boathouse. The neighborhood of City Park mainly consists of the park, which is the largest one in Denver. The entirety of the neighborhood itself is merely two blocks wide and approximately a mile long. City Park is home to the East High School (1925) as well as the green area City Park Esplanade, sort of an extension to the main park. The eastern section of the neighborhood is known as the Bluebird District, after the Bluebird Theater on Colfax Avenue. The area around the theatre is filled with urban development, like stores, restaurants and residential structures. The Colfax area has become a popular spot for its vivid commercial activity, with nearby additions like the Tattered Cover bookstore and Twist & Shout record store. Most people come to the neighborhood for the park however, as City Park is still the foremost park in Denver. Thousands of people come here daily not only to enjoy the green respite, but for the many attractions within the park perimeters. The park offers things like free summer concerts, boat rentals and private events. The Ferril Lake features its own attraction, the Prismatic Fountain. The fountain was built back in 1908, and designed by the famous engineer Frederic W. Darlington. Back then the park addition was a revolutionary feature, and today it is upgraded with LED lights cycling through various formations a beautiful spectacle in the evening dusk.
