During the summer months, the Park hosts a variety of special concerts such as the Colorado Symphony. One great accompaniment to an evening out is the stroll east down Old South Gaylord Street or west on South Pearl Street to browse through unique shops and find a special place for dinner at one of the diverse blend of restaurants in the neighboring Platt Park community.

Residents find a wealth of golf courses nearby. On the Fourth of July, residents may watch fireworks launched at the historic Denver Country Club from the lawns of Washington Park. Additional festivals, sporting events, and attractions like the Denver Zoo, Children’s Museum, Denver Botanical Gardens, and Denver Art Museum are only 10 minutes up the side streets.
