The same day we visited the Denver Museum of Nature & Science, we also spent a some time at City Park in Denver. City Park is situated in the same location as the Museum and the Denver Zoo.

The huge grassy areas and full shade trees just beg for picnickers to take advantage of the opportunity to spend a lazy afternoon in the park.

The "Pickles" tossed a frisbee back and forth while we walked toward the water.
Benches set up by the water offer a nice place to rest with views of the fountain in the center and the Pavilion on the other side.
Geese are everywhere (so watch your step) but seemed friendly enough and didn't bother us at all.
We didn't explore too much of the park. It was already getting close to dinnertime. But we did manage to stop off at the park playground before heading home.
