Outdoor Activities

Yoga Rocks the Park

Gather your friends and head to Sunken Gardens Park for this free event. It takes place on several days throughout the summer. There’s live music, yoga and meditation for all levels. After your yoga practice, there are several wellness vendors to explore, as well as food and drink.

Play Ball

It is baseball season after all! Grab your friends and family and find a baseball field near you for a fun game. Pack a picnic lunch and now you have your whole day planned.

Bird Walk

This free class is for everyone. Explore the Audobon Sanctuary at Heritage Golf Course in Westminster. Learn all about birding and how the golf course protects them. Binoculars are available, but feel free to bring your own if you have them. You must register for this class through the City of Westminster’s Activity Registration Webpage.

Take a Hike

There still may be too much snow high up in the mountains, but that doesn’t mean there’s not any hiking to be had. Just head to the foothills! There are plenty of good hiking locations within a half hour of the metro area. Make sure you’re wearing appropriate shoes and sunblock and don’t forget the water.

Volleyball in the Park

Volleyball in Wash Park is a big thing here in Denver. You have to get up early to get a good spot, but don’t worry, there’s plenty of space in this park. Fill your cooler and spend the day playing with your friends. You can even bring your dog. Afterward, you can grill out on any of the numerous grills provided in the park and keep the fun going!
