About Cheesman Park

Cheesman Park, located near Capital Hill is not only a Denver neighborhood, but it is one of the cities most popular parks. Spread across only 11 city blocks, the Cheesman Park neighborhood may seem small but don't underestimate this downtown gem! Packed with outdoor activities, Cheesman Park is also home to the 24-acre Denver Botanic Gardens. Also, this neighborhood has a spooky history! Cheeseman Park didn't become the outdoor oasis we know and love today until 1890, prior to that it was the Denver City Cemetery.  In 1890 the process of moving over 5,000 graves began, but rumor has it not all bodies were removed. Despite it's haunting history, Cheeseman Park remains a beloved spot to enjoy a summer concert, eat delicious food (hello, Voodoo Doughnut!) and gawk at the historic mansions that line these streets.
