Newton and Turkey Creek Parks

Newton Park is open to the public by reservation only. It has three distinct valleys with large picnic shelters and recreation areas for groups. It has spectacular views to the south. The distinctive modern architecture of the shelters give Newton a more modern character that is distinct from the other mountain parks. Turkey Creek Park is a quiet roadside park with a wonderful highly riparian setting. It is probably the least known of all the developed Denver Mountain Parks. Turkey Creek Park has an informal picnic area with facilities located under a canopy of mature cottonwood trees.
