The Water Walk apartment/hotel building is right across the parking lot from NAPA Denver. This is by far the most convenient place to stay! Walk to NAPA and rock your therapy sessions. Then head back to your home away from home and lounge in the outdoor living area or get your workout on in the fitness center. With multiple room options, including one and two-bedroombedroom suites, ask for the NAPA rate when booking.

Do we need a rental car?
NAPA Denver is within walking distance of several shops and restaurants. However, Denver’s public transit is extremely limited, and the city’s many attractions are spread throughout the metropolitan area. This being said, we do recommend you rent a car for your stay. There are many rental options available at DIA. If you need to rent a wheelchair accessible vehicle, check out unitedaccess.com/rental
Sessions run smoother when both the parents and therapists can focus on the patient at hand. If you must bring siblings, they may wait in the parent lounge with a parent. We ask you keep them off the therapy equipment and refrain from using toys as tempting as our open gym setting is.
If you would prefer not to bring siblings to sessions, KidsTown is a reputable drop-in daycare in the area and both the Paker and Smoky Hill locations are within driving distance. Both locations are approximately a 15–20-minute drive from NAPA.

Denver City Park is home to the Denver Zoo, the Denver Museum of Nature and Science, and an awesome playground.

Periodically, the museum opens only for families with disabilities providing extra accommodations.
- Englewood/Bellview Children’s Park
A favorite summer spot! The Park has several playgrounds, petting zoo, and a train ride. Bring a picnic lunch and spend the day lounging (or practicing your Home Exercise Program) on the many large grassy areas! Don’t forget a swimsuit and water shoes to play in the creek.

This playground has something for everyone! There are switch-enabled musical instruments sprinkled throughout the variety of swings (including a wheelchair swing), slides, and ziplines. There are several sunshades for a break from the sun and, in warmer months, the splash pad gives everyone a fun place to cool off!
