    This is a great park to run or take your dog for a nice walk or throw the ball. It can get busy on weekends. Beautiful sunset from the columns. If you are local ride your bike there & watch sunset

    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.

    This is the one of the best parks in Denver. Cheesman Park was named after Walter Cheesman at the start of the 20th century. It a very beautiful and peaceful place. You can enjoy your weekend here.

    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.

    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.

    Beautiful place to enjoy he weekend sun. And the history of this place is fun! Walk around a bit and look for the History board. You won't be disappointed.

    Great Urban Park. It sits on the site of what was the old Denver City Cemetery. They say it's haunted. Nevertheless, playground, running and walking path.

    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!

    Really nice park in a great neighborhood... But there was an odd bunch of homeless people gathered around the main area on top of the hill

    Great running trail around the park and a very dog friendly atmosphere. Not as crowded or "spring break" feeling as Wash Park.

    In the 1800's cheeseman was denvers original grave yard until the city decided to make a park, and exumed all the bodys. The place is haunted. Go there at night.

    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.

    Great spot for running! One lap around the park is about 1.4 miles and pretty flat. Dog and kid friendly!

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

    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.

    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.
