Berkeley Lake Park

Denver County

Berkeley Lake Park provides an attractively forested and lawned setting.  It is a fine example of the early design and use of parks for public recreation programs (including swimming, horseshoes, tennis, etc.), for family picnics, for informal field games, and for public facilities (including a major senior and recreation center and a branch of the Denver Public Library).

The park was originally developed between 1906 and 1910, but it was redesigned by Saco R. DeBoer in the 1920s.  The property is associated with the Denver Park and Parkway System Thematic Resource.
