Four Mile Historic Park
This preserved park features three barns complete with chicken coops and root cellars on 12 acres (4.85 hectares) of land. Children can pan for gold or pick a pumpkin in during the spooky season. Carriage rides are available for the entire family on weekends. The park provides guided tours of the Four Mile House, the oldest standing home in the city.
When my kids were little, back in the 90's, 4-Mile Historic Park is where we chose to spend the day on the 4th of July. Haven't been there in about two years, but I'm sure it's the same: old-fashioned picnic lunch, volunteers dressed in 1800's garb, a Union Civil War regiment setting up camp and occasionally firing a cannon, horse-drawn wagon rides around the park, blacksmith shop, farm animals, craft demonstrations, cooking demonstrations, music, tour of the old house/inn, and a grand reading of the Declaration of Independence in the afternoon sun (after a concert by the Denver Brass). Sometimes there is an old-fashioned baseball game in the evening, too.
My two oldest kids also attended a week-long day camp there in the summer once, complete with old-fashioned games, and panning for gold in Cherry Creek. This is a great place! I've never been there during any other events, nor do I know what it's like when there isn't a special holiday -- but I definitely recommend it for a family Fourth!
The events and and special programs are great fun for all. There is a lot to learn while having a great time. It is easy to leave or stay on your own scheldule. Great for really young to grandparents. Enjoy!
