Cheesman Park Professional Guide

Detailed Trail Description from our Guidebook

"The first two blocks of this walk are along Denver’s first designated residential historic district. The owners of these stately mansions sought the designation as more and more homes were replaced by the high-rise apartment buildings you will see in another part of this walk. Not only were exquisite homes demolished but the taller buildings also obliterated the mountain views from the individual homes.

Despite the fact that Cheesman Park was the site of Denver’s first cemetery, people saw the potential beauty of the area and began building some of these homes before there was actually a park next door. The eastern side of the old cemetery was converted to the Denver Botanic Gardens in 1958 and is worth walking around in any season to explore its indoor and outdoor gardens."
