Cherry Creek State Park
|Visit our Web site|
Cherry Creek, Denver's backyard playground, offers unlimited recreation anchored around an 850 surface acre lake. The park offers a natural prairie environment of gentle, rolling hills and complete outdoor recreation facilities, camping, group picnic sites and facilities for special events, all in the midst of a busy urban area.
Cherry Creek's trail system will lead visitors around 4,200 acres along several self-guided nature trails for everyone to enjoy year-round. Hikers can expect to see grasslands, cottonwood trees and marshes along the trails. Wildlife watchers can admire the mule deer and great horned owl year round.
Horse owners will find miles of multi-use trails.
The Cherry Creek Marina (303-779-6144) can make a sailor, wind-surfer or water-skier out of the eager-to-learn with lessons and rentals. Boaters will find additional conveniences, such as slip rentals and fuel.
The Family Shooting Center (303-680-5401) is a full-service public outdoor range.
Visa, Mastercard and Discover are accepted.
