Public cannabis consumption is still illegal in Colorado, but that's never stopped us: A joint in the park is one of the greatest simple pleasures of summer. For those who'd prefer to enjoy one inconspicuously, the right patch of grass for an afternoon j requires a rare combination of size, beauty and location. City Park is too wide open, and Washington and Cheesman Parks are too packed — but Little Cheesman is just right. The square-block park sticks out like a green hangnail on one of Denver's most popular recreational areas. Like Cheesman, it's loaded with good trees and hangout areas; unlike Cheesman, it's rarely busy enough to stop you from having a safe, respectful smoking session. And there's room enough for a game of catch afterward.
