Top 5 Things to Do Near Park Hill For a Safe Halloween Weekend

2020 has been a spooky time in Colorado.

From the pandemic to the largest wildfires in state history to two snowstorms before the end of October, it’s definitely been a ghastly year thus far.

This year has provided events that we’ll never forget—so why let Halloween be an exception?

If you live in the Park Hill area, there are tons of safe ways to celebrate the spooky season for both you and the family.

In this article, I’m going to give you some of the best ideas for things to do surrounding Park Hill this holiday weekend!

Let’s get to it.

Boo at the Zoo

Boo at the Zoo has been a tradition in Denver for some time now, and this year, it has been extended to run through October 31.

The theme is Storybook Safari, featuring costumed characters and mythical creatures. It’s a great way to the whole family involved while staying safely distanced outdoors.

Toss on a safari-themed mask and get out there!

Trick or Treating

Park Hill is known across the Denver metro area for having some of the best Halloween decorations in Colorado. Walking around the neighborhood this season, 2020 hasn’t killed off any of the residents’ spirits!

Obviously, trick or treating is going to look different this year. The Greater Park Hill Community recommends following the recently published Colorado health officials guidelines for a safe trick or treating experience.

With temperatures forecast around 60 degrees for Saturday, there will likely be opportunity for residents to sit outdoors and hand out candy with minimal contact. For now, it looks like Trick or Treating is a go!

Starting a New Tradition

Not comfortable heading out into public this Halloween?

Why not start a new tradition? Maybe it’s a glow in the dark Halloween egg hunt, or a pumpkin carving contest, or trying out a spooky cocktail.

And as every Park Hill resident knows, there’s always fun to be had at City Park. A costume party in the park—what could be a better way to enjoy the final warm days of the season?

Ghosts in the Garden – Open Air Scare

If you’re looking for your Halloween fix in advance, the Denver Botanic Gardens hosts an awesome outdoor ghost tour on Oct. 29 and 30.

Take the short drive from Park Hill to Cap Hill for a socially distanced stroll through the botanic gardens to encounter true ghost stories from the haunted areas of the gardens!

Drive in Haunted House

Halloween has been reimagined in so many innovative ways around the Park Hill area this season, and City of the Dead’s Drive-In Haunted House is no exception.

The experience features an original multimedia haunted show display on a 40-foot screen, with wandering characters that help bring the story to life!

A drive in Haunted House is basically a 3D horror movie, and is the perfect way to get your dose of scaries before settling in for the long winter.


While Halloween in Park Hill looks different in 2020, there is certainly no lack of spirit.

From drive-in haunted houses to ghost stories in the garden, there is a ton of great stuff happening in the greater Park Hill area.

Whether you’re making adjustments to old traditions or bringing in new ones, what could be better than dressing up with your friends and letting go for the night?
