Designated as the Prospect Hill Cemetery by General William Larimer in 1858, Cheesman Park originally encompassed the current area, the Botanic Gardens region, nearby city water reservoirs and Congress Park. In 1890, the cemetery was relocated and the site was reclassified as Congress Park. German landscape architect, Reinhard Schuetze, created the park's first design plan, completed after his death in 1910 by architect S. R. DeBoer.
For the densely populated area of Capitol Hill, Chessman park offers green grass, tall trees and bountiful flowers. Surrounded by a wide variety of residential choices, this neighborhood provides a wonderful retreat within the urban community. Home to the Denver Botanic Garden's Japanese Garden, residents and visitors walk within its peaceful surroundings to relax and explore. Throughout the year joggers, kite flyers and families enjoy this wonderful area and all it has to offer.
Surrounded by high and mid-rise condos and lofts, the area also boasts the Wyman's, Morgans' Addition and Humbold Island residential historic districts. History meets modern architecture in an area that offers diversity in structure and residents. Very few neighborhoods offer the beauty, closeness to downtown and wonderful homes like Cheeseman Park.
