Overview

Since 1912 the city of Denver has owned parks in the mountains west of the city limits. Today there are 22 developed parks and 24 conservation parks comprising 14,141 acres in the Denver Mountain Parks system.

Most visitors don't even realize these parks belong to Denver, but without these parks, many scenic mountain ridges would be covered with subdivisions today.

With location maps and lists of activities provided for each park, travelers will want to carry this handy guide along with them on trips to Denver Mountain Parks.
