Nearly 1.5 million visitors a year can't be wrong! Some come to practice their aim at the park's shooting range, and others use the large, paved model airplane field. Less busy during midweek, Cherry Creek is aconvenient getaway for frazzled urbanites. And this state park was the site of the prayer vigil and papal mass with Pope John Paul II during World Youth Day 1993.

Cherry Creek State Park offers a natural prairie environment of gentle, rolling hills and complete outdoor recreation facilities, including full service camping, group picnic sites and facilities for special events, all in the midst of a busy urban area. Fun seekers visit the park to enjoy boating, jet skiing, water skiing, sailing, fishing and swimming on this 1,000 surface-acre lake. Biking, hiking, and horseback riding are also popular pass times.

The park is located one mile south of I-225 on Parker Road, adjacent to south Denver.
