The Highlands neighborhood was once home to three amusement parks that all competed for customers beginning in the late 1800s. Into the 1990s, there were still two of these historic amusement parks standing and in use, and now just one remains, which you will see on this walk. Perhaps it was the combination of open land, the strict moral codes of the neighborhood that forbid alcohol sales for many years, and a desire to get out of the hectic downtown for a little clean fun nearby that made Highlands a natural place to develop gardens, add some animals, and throw in a few thrill rides. Elitch Gardens was the best-known amusement park—in Denver and beyond—and this walk will begin on the site of the park’s remains that are now surrounded by urban infill housing. For several blocks, Tennyson Street is a thriving business district filled with shops, restaurants, and art galleries. As the walk comes to an end after a stroll through Berkeley Park, you will have a chance to experience living history at Lakeside Amusement Park, the city’s last historic amusement park still in operation since its opening in 1908.
