Foursquare Tips

  • In the Fall, trees stop producing chlorophyll. The carotenoids present in the leaves can finally show through. The leaves become a bright mix of glowing yellows, warm oranges and comforting browns.
  • Go to the rose garden in the middle of the park and just sit. Breathe. And enjoy the peaceful mixture of nature and city noises.
  • In the 1800's cheeseman was denvers original grave yard until the city decided to make a park, and exumed all the bodys. The place is haunted. Go there at night.
  • Cheesman Park was named after Walter Cheesman at the start of the 20th century (1907); in fact, his family financed the beautiful, neoclassical pavilion you see on the eastern side of the park.
  • Take time out of your busy day to enjoy a slice of Nature. It's a great way to keep your sanity, and it's FREE!
  • Yappy Hour is sparse today. But still it's a beautiful day in the park
  • This was Denver's first cemetery so the park is haunted. I even heard you can see a ghost floating around the pavilion some nights.... Beautiful park though! One of my favorites in Denver!
  • wiffleball every nice wednesday at 4:30pm. come play! NO JERKS!
  • They close the park to vehicles on the first Sunday of each month; in addition, they block off the entrances for certain holidays and special events.
  • Great spot for running! One lap around the park is about 1.4 miles and pretty flat. Dog and kid friendly!
  • This is a great park to run or take your dog for a nice walk or throw the ball. It can get busy on weekends. Beautiful sunset from the columns. If you are local ride your bike there & watch sunset
  • Beautiful park. All types of sporting events. And a few crazy people!
  • If you like to run, try getting to the track/path between 5 to 7 AM for a less-crowded experience.
  • Drive the speed limit on your way home from work. The park has a posted speed limit of 15mph. It's not a short cut, it's a park.
  • Beautiful park to hang out at on a lazy Saturday.
  • Great running trail around the park and a very dog friendly atmosphere. Not as crowded or "spring break" feeling as Wash Park.
  • A nice and peaceful place!
  • With less water vapor in the air at this altitude, the sky really is bluer in Colorado. Is the grass greener, too? Because it kind of seems like it.
  • Works will be soon over, can't wait!
  • Keep your dog on leash because the police have been known to give tickets!
