Vincent Scully, former Yale University art historian, described the 1898 Cheesman Park as one of the finest urban spaces in America. The park is the masterpiece of Denver’s turn-of-the-century landscape architect, Reinhard Schuetze.
His plan features a superbly graded meadow, a beautiful undulating forest edge, fine short views within the park and long views to the Rocky Mountains, and, at the highest point in the park, a neo-classical pavilion. The property is associated with the Denver Park and Parkway System Thematic Resource.
