With warmer weather and ample sunshine quickly approaching, now is the time to start planning some fun weekend adventures for the spring. Below you’ll find a list of our 5 favorite things to do in the Confluence Park area of Denver this spring.
Float on down the River
Jump in your kayak and enjoy riding through the rapids at Confluence Park. The man-made whitewater course has some of the best urban whitewater in the country. No matter your chosen method of floating – kayak, SUP board, or even tubing, you’re sure to have a blast at this fun spot.
Picnic at the Park
One of the best ways to get outside and enjoy time with family or friends is by setting up a picnic in the park. Grab a blanket, some snacks, and a few brews, and enjoy an afternoon lounging around people watching. Confluence Park has ample room right along the river’s edge.
Baseball Game at the Rockpile
Whether or not baseball is your favorite sport, everyone will enjoy a trip to Coors Field for a game. For a fun experience, buy tickets for “The Rockpile” a section of outfield seating that not only lets you catch the game, but also enjoy the nature that surround the stadium.
Rent a Bicycle and Ride
Now that the weather is warming up, it’s a great time to get out and enjoy the sun and see the city. There are local B-Stations all around the city where you can rent a bike and ride. We recommend the station at 15th Street and Delgany as you’ll be right near the popular bike trails that run along the South Platte River.
The Big Wonderful Festival
It’s no secret that Denver is home to some amazing breweries and has a vibrant food and artisan craft scene as well. The Big Wonderful festival combines all three together with live music during a two-day Beerfest and Bazaar. Enjoy browsing through the various vendors wares while sipping on an ice-cold brew from a local seller. Come Join the festivities on May 4+5, 2019.
