A mix of home styles surround Washington Park , the largest park in this district and is over 100 years old. It hosts over 250 picnic permits per year and has many unique features such as a 2.6-mile jogging path, the busiest recreation center in Denver and 2 of the most flamboyant flower gardens in Denver. It has several soccer fields, 2 playgrounds (1 handicap accessible), 1 basketball and roller blade court, 1 horseshoe court, 10 tennis courts and a lawn bowling green and 2 lakes.
Beautiful, wide-open spaces and two lakes dominate the landscape, and an indoor pool and gym facilities at recently renovated recreation center are just some of the recreational opportunities available. Tennis courts (on both sides of the south lake), a massive playground and jogging paths provide additional diversions. It’s a fantasyland for in-line skaters and bicyclists as well as gardening enthusiasts – the park’s colorful flower beds along Downing Street are some of Wash Park ‘s best summer features.
Plenty of shops plus restaurants offering nearly every type of cuisine are nearby: to the east along Old South Gaylord Street, and to the west on South Pearl Street.
