South Platte Kids Zone: Fun Activities for Kids


Looking for things to do in Denver with kids this Labor Day weekend? There’s fun for all at A Taste of Colorado produced by the Downtown Denver Partnership.

The Kids Zone is a family-friendly area offering free activities for kids of all ages.  Children will have a blast expressing themselves while creating fun and easy crafts – all for free!

The Denver Public Library will be located in the Kids Zone with their Wheelie book bike as well as offering story time on Saturday and Sunday from 1pm – 4pm.

Children’s Hospital will also be offering exciting drawings for Denver Bronco memorabilia as well as handing out band-aid dispensers, coloring sheets, a button maker as well as parent resource handouts.

Nursing mothers and families can visit the “Mommy Station”, a convenient area located in the Kids Zone for parents to nurse, change diapers, and relax in a private environment complete with a rocking chair. An assortment of supplies including diapers and baby wipes are offered as part of the “Mommy Station” experience.

Lots of Family Fun!

Little ones can explore and learn with the interactive “Snug Play” pop-up playground from Street Scapes. “Snug Play” offers unlimited creative possibilities for children to create active, imaginative play spaces with large-scale loose play elements perfect for jumping, bouncing, rocking, or spinning.

HAVE A KID-SIZED PORTION OF SOMETHING TASTY & EXOTIC – Kid-friendly food vendors are located near the Kids Zone selling pretzels, popcorn, funnel cakes, pizza and more. A Taste of Colorado is also an opportunity for parents to encourage their children to sample new cuisine (we have alligator!), as many of the restaurants offer “taste-sized” portions for three to four tickets.
