Not all places to park in Denver are created equal.

Some collect more in fines than others. A lot more.

As evidence, consider data recently collected by 9News about parking fines in Denver, using 2014 figures. Many of the addresses listed generated hundreds of tickets and thousands in fines — and while most of them are clustered in the downtown area, the ones that proved most lucrative for local law enforcement are in the vicinity of the Denver Zoo and the Denver Museum of Nature & Science.

Count down the top 25 below, listed in reverse order by the cumulative fines assessed at each location. (They're all listed as meters, but some spots appear to correspond to general locations, including the Zoo and the Nature & Science museum.) We've included interactive graphics for several of them; if you have problems seeing the images, click "View on Google Maps." And for a map that offers a wider view, click here.
