Cheesman Park

About this Neighborhood

Inviting to all lifestyles, the Cheesman Park neighborhood provides a balanced atmosphere between the quieter Congress Park area and busier Capitol Hill. With plenty of green space, Cheesman Park is the top spot for sitting in the sun, doing yoga on the grass, walking the dog or tossing a Frisbee with friends. It also has a 1.6-mile running loop, which appeals to the many active residents, and the park’s pavilion is a perfect date spot with its exceptional downtown and mountain views.

From old mansions to sophisticated high-rise apartment buildings, Cheesman Park offers architecture for every taste. The area is beyond beautiful in every season and includes the Denver Botanic Gardens and its nationally recognized alpine garden. The Carla Madison Recreation Center located on Colfax Avenue is a new state-of-the-art recreation center that has 2 pools, a weight area, a cardio area, and much more! There are also plenty of Denver-staple eateries and coffee shops to choose from.
