Best Parks In Denver Metro Area For Kids: #1

Dare To Share!

I don’t know about you, but I’m always on a mission to find the best parks in Denver, CO to take my kids to. My worst nightmare is getting everyone ready to go and, five minutes after arriving, I hear the dreaded call of boredom; “There’s nothing to do,” “I’m hoooooot.” Therefore, this year I am on a mission to find the very best parks in the Denver Metro Area. These parks must have  a smattering of fun equipment, a bathroom, water of some kind, benches and/or picnic tables so my tired booty can sit, and be within about a 20-25 minute drive of my house.

The first park I have found this summer that kicked absolute butt, is in Arvada just off I-76 and Sheridan. A friend of mine happened across this awesome-pants location and managed to drag our brood along to check it out a few weeks ago! Clear Creek Valley Park: Best Parks In Denver

Clear Creak Valley Park, brand new as of March 2017, is definitely one of the best parks in Denver. With literally everything I could hope for in a great place to spend a few hours playing, we will be going often this summer!Clear Creek Valley Park: Best Parks In Denver

Nestled next to a beautiful pond (literally teaming with fish if you’re looking for a little fishing expedition) this whimsicle park has something for everyone.

Your little ones will love and 5 and under area complete with swing-set, playhouse and slide. Clear Creek Valley Park: Best Parks In Denver Clear Creek Valley Park: Best Parks In Denver Clear Creek Valley Park: Best Parks In Denver

The bigger kids in your house will love the Tree House and Zip Line…let’s face it, everyone, including the parents, will love the zip line!Clear Creek Valley Park: Best Parks In Denver Clear Creek Valley Park: Best Parks In Denver

Clear Creek Valley Park: Best Parks In DenverWhile the zip line and play equipment are all super fun, the number one activity for my kids was the water feature.  Water pumps and a flowing stream through the middle of the park brought hours of amusement during a hot day!Clear Creek Valley Park: Best Parks In DenverClear Creek Valley Park: Best Parks In Denver Clear Creek Valley Park: Best Parks In Denver Clear Creek Valley Park: Best Parks In Denver

I also love that this park is full of covered picnic table areas (over 15 tables!) and benches EVERYWHERE! Therefore I could always find a spot to sit my pregnant self down rather than stand on a hot day and watch my littlest ones run amok and we could eat our picnic lunch in the shade on a nice clean table.

The bathrooms are another great feature of this park! For pregnant ladies this is a real concern! There are no port-a-potties or dirty stand alone’s here! The bathrooms are set slightly away from the park and are oh so very nice!
