    Search for the Hula-Hooping Pedestrian Crossing sign. I promise you it’s real.

    Cheesman Park was named after Walter Cheesman at the start of the 20th century (1907); in fact, his family financed the beautiful, neoclassical pavilion you see on the eastern side of the park.

    In the Fall, trees stop producing chlorophyll. The carotenoids present in the leaves can finally show through. The leaves become a bright mix of glowing yellows, warm oranges and comforting browns.

    Go to the rose garden in the middle of the park and just sit. Breathe. And enjoy the peaceful mixture of nature and city noises.

    They close the park to vehicles on the first Sunday of each month; in addition, they block off the entrances for certain holidays and special events.

    This was Denver's first cemetery so the park is haunted. I even heard you can see a ghost floating around the pavilion some nights.... Beautiful park though! One of my favorites in Denver!

    If you like to run, try getting to the track/path between 5 to 7 AM for a less-crowded experience.

    With less water vapor in the air at this altitude, the sky really is bluer in Colorado. Is the grass greener, too? Because it kind of seems like it.

    Drive the speed limit on your way home from work. The park has a posted speed limit of 15mph. It's not a short cut, it's a park.
