Cheesman Park is one of Denver’s oldest neighborhoods with city plats dating back to 1868. Built on the site of a 19th-century cemetery, the land was repurposed as parkland in 1890 and completed in the early 1900s. The park and surrounding neighborhood were renamed Cheesman Park following a considerable donation from the widow of Walter S. Cheesman to construct the neoclassical pavilion in the park known as Denver’s “Temple in the Sun”.
A key neighborhood in Mayor Speer’s City Beautiful initiative, Cheesman Park embodies the varying architectural styles popular at the time, including Spanish, Greek, and Colonial revival styles, as well as the iconic Denver Square. The immediate area surrounding the neighborhood’s namesake park was almost totally developed by 1915 by the city’s wealthiest residents who built many of the larger homes that still remain. Today the neighborhood has an assortment of pre-war condominium buildings, contemporary luxury high-rises, quaint single-family homes, and historic mansions.
Renowned for its beauty and culture, the neighborhood is consistently a city favorite, attracting a diverse range of residents from mansion dwellers to apartment renters, all drawn to the idyllic and welcoming way of life that Cheesman Park affords. Locals can enjoy the Colorado outdoor lifestyle with all the benefits of urban city living. Mature trees, historic homes, and the eponymous park embellish the timeless elegance and charm that residents love.
