#9 of 13 in Parks in Denver
Cheesman Park is an urban park and neighborhood located in the City and County of Denver, Colorado, United States.GeographyCheesman Park is located in central Denver, southeast of downtown. The Park has inexact borders, as it is framed on 3 sides by private residences, but is located in center of the Cheesman Park neighborhood, between Humboldt Street on the west, Race Street and Denver Botanic Gardens on the east, 13th Avenue on the north, and 8th Avenue on the south. The neighborhood's borders are approximately: West: Downing StreetEast: York StreetNorth: Colfax AvenueSouth: 6th-8th Avenue, depending on the sourceEarly park historyIn the late 19th century, the land that is now Cheesman Park was Prospect Hill Cemetery, which also included the land that is now the Denver Botanical Garden and Congress Park further east. The long-disused cemetery was converted to a park which opened in 1907, after city planners felt it would provide an amenity to new residents as land development moved east of the central city. The park was originally named for the US Congress who gave permission to change the cemetery to a park and was renamed Cheesman Park in honor of Denver pioneer Walter Cheesman whose family donated the funds for the neoclassical pavilion on the eastern side of the park in his honor shortly after his death.

    This park is wide open and has an area of sidewalks through trees. Really pretty to stroll through. Many people walking or jogging through, some with dogs. Very open and clean.  more »

    Beautiful park. My main criteria for my apartment was that it had to be within walking distance of Cheesman. Very safe at all times of the day (even after hours, the park really isn't ever sketchy), great place to to dog walking, clean and well maintained. Gigantic open spaces where people play volleyball, fly drones, play fetch with their dogs. Walking trails are expansive with various terrains.

    Spacious and peaceful. Not to difficult to have a small private get together without others intruding or being too close by. Also well kept.

    Great park in the heart of Denver. Plenty of room to have a picnic, play volleyball, or just relax under a tree and read. This park is adjacent to the Denver Botanic Gardens.

    Great park to relax or join a volleyball game. If you bring beer, make sure it's in cans. The park rangers frequent this place.

    Beautiful statues, great history, close to downtown Denver's restaurants and interests. Homeless and addicts, but not a terrible place
