This Roadside Attraction In Denver Is The Most Unique Thing You’ve Ever Seen

When it comes to quirky roadside attractions, Colorado has plenty to go around! From the Museum of Colorado Prisons to the Colorado Gators Reptile Park all the way to the Lee Maxwell Washing Machine Museum, there is no shortage of these tourist gems to visit. When it comes to roadside attractions in Denver, however, this popular park may just take home the award for having the most unique playground you have ever seen:

Nestled within Denver’s Bear Creek Park lies a large and colorful playground fit for children of all ages. While the concept of having a play area in a park is nothing new, a certain slide at Bear Creek Park that is shaped like an over-sized sombrero certainly is! For decades, this area of the aptly nicknamed “Sombrero Park” — which features what appears to be a giant napping in the sand while his hat, legs, and boots peek out — has delighted guests of all ages by giving them a new type of playground to climb up, slide down, and just enjoy. Whether you are a kid or a self-proclaimed kid at heart, you are sure to get a kick out of this one-of-a-kind Denver roadside attraction.

(Bear Creek Park is located at 3550 S Raleigh St and is open daily from 5 am to 11 pm.)
