I had the pleasure of popping in here a few times. I always enjoy stopping to smell the roses in their garden when I go for walks. They had a free entry all last year! They often do this for the candle walk as well. They have fun events and there is some interesting articles, artifacts and activities for the kids.

Love this park, especially since they have added all the new beautiful routes down to the water. It is great to see kayakers, paragliders and walkers out and about in all weather. Also love the new history homes that are decorated inside and the chicken coop. Lots of fun and beauty for the family. Good running and a playground too!

Went and saw the Christmas lights which are pretty decent. You do a small river walk that is lit up with a great presentation of lights. Make sure to dress warm since it is next to the river. Bundle up those little ones as well.

Such a beautiful walk along the river in Golden! We watched people on kayaks and inner tubes, visited the riverside museum and explored the historical buildings along the way. Its a perfect place to spend some family time, and let the kids play at the various playgrounds and green areas along the way. And youre just steps away from great restaurants when its time for food!

Tour guides are available in kiosk pamphlet holders at either end of the park. You cant enter the buildings but the tour guide pamphlet contains a lot of information about the locations, their history, and what is going on with them now. There are formal tours, the times for which are on the pamphlet, which are guided tours with informative tour guides.This park is free, and parking is street parking, and also free. There are port-o-johns here.

This is all part of Golden, CO with the beautiful river flowing through Golden. Lots of folks go tubing and kayaking. Always something going in and around town. Highly recommend visiting Golden if in the Denver area. Golden is also close to Red Rocks Ampitheater where alot of great music artist appear.

Brilliant place! Weve been here several times to walk the park. Some really cool homestead structures, a garden, and farm animals - all to replicate some of the aspects of homesteader living. Fun spot to walk through when you visit Golden. Next to Clear Creek. Also, Golden City Brewery is across the street for afterward!

Cool place to get some history and sometimes they have events. Golden has a long and rich history. From the coors brewery to the gold rush and much more.

Review №55

I traveled to GOLDEN, CO. for the Coors brewery tour and heard about the crystal clear ice melt water that they use for their beer from the nearby creek. When i went to see this creek i was in awe as to the beauty of GOLDEN and its creek. I had to jump in the freezing water and observe all the rafts, canoes and swimmers. An awesome creek and park for you to visit. If you do visit make sure you pick up your trash before you leave.

If youve ever walked along Clear Creek in Golden, than you have probably been by the Clear Creek History Park. Its hard to miss, yet most people never take the time to explore the historic buildings, or attend some of the lectures and reenactments. You can download a free map from their website to do a self-guided tour and get a lot of great photos, or check out the calendar of events. Take note that not all of the events on the calendar are free but well worth the cost.
