William Frederick Hayden Park, aka Green Mountain, is more than 2,400 acres of open space, making it the second largest in Lakewood. Its summit at 6,800 feet offers fantastic 360° views of the Denver metropolis and Rocky Mountains.
Most of the park was donated by, or purchased from, the Hayden family in 1972. It is now run by the city of Lakewood.
