Outdoor Activities

This park, which once served as a Denver cemetery in the late 1800s, features a west facing marble acropolis that offers incredible mountain views and opens onto the beautiful grounds of the park, which includes the Denver Botanic Gardens. A large open lawn comprises the mid-section of this neighborhood park, making it ideal for lounging, walking the dog, or soaking up one of Colorado's 300 days of sun. Runners jam the footpaths that circle the park. A small playground for kids hides in a grove of trees.
