Denver Parks #1

Denver has over 260 parks, including seven dog parks with off-leash areas. I moved here in 1986 and that’s one of my favorite things about living here. This city has always been so dedicated to providing this amenity for almost 100 years, starting with Robert Speer who was Denver’s mayor from 1904 until 1918. (He died of pneumonia halfway through his third term.) It seems like you’re never more than a few blocks away from greenspace. Mayfair Park is very close to one of Jake’s houses (he has two, by the way). You can find him here several times a week, around 5:00 pm. Say “hello” if you see us there.
