“Denver's Prettiest Park”
Reviewed 15 May 2013

Cheesman Park has the best views of both downtown and mountains, wide open green space combined with nice wooded trails. Proximity to the botanic gardans also makes it a nice place to spend the day. Parking is easy, and the surrounding neighborhoods have some of the prettiest mansions in the city.

“Nice, but don't go out of your way”
Reviewed 15 April 2013

A great place to go for a run and a look at the mountains. Very relaxing park that would be great for a picnic. If you're a tourist though, don't go out of your way to get here.

“Relaxing”
Reviewed 6 April 2013

Right by the Botanic Gardens, nice place to picnic on the lawn or walk. Beautiful pavilion sits in the middle of the park. Read up on the history of the park and its significance beforehand, or just visit for a relaxing time.

“Nice for a day in the sun.”
Reviewed 23 February 2013

Great place to have a picnic and play some volley ball or frisbee. Known for a GLBT friendly park. Great spot for some family portraits too!

“Former Cemetery”
Reviewed 20 February 2013

Cheeseman started out as a cemetery, but a majority of the bodies were removed to make way for the new park. Aside from the ghostly inhabitants who still remain, the park is largely patronized by the LGBT community. While visiting the park, take a stroll along the tree lined paths, check out the Cheeseman Memorial and fountains, and venture into the surrounding neighborhoods to view some of the historic mansions.
