The Cheesman Park neighborhood is one of Denver’s oldest residential areas. The neighborhood was almost totally developed by 1915, and was characterized by large homes for the wealthy. Much of Cheesman Park’s history is shrouded by the fact that the land was historically used as a cemetery. Now, Cheesman Park Neighborhood is home to some of Denver’s most beloved sites, such as Denver Botanic Gardens and Cheesman Park itself.
On the whole, Cheesman Park has remained true to its original design. It is one of the last urban parks in the country where vehicles are permitted to travel through and around the grounds. Today Cheesman Park is comprised primarily of restaurants, bars, apartment buildings, conversion condo buildings, and restored homes. (DNN). Learn more about this classic Denver neighborhood below!
