Join the Denver Architectural Foundation and guides, Andy Meessmann and Amy Von Thun (experts on landscape design and architecture!), for a 60-minute walking tour of Cheesman Park. The area we know as Cheesman Park today was originally Mount Prospect Cemetery, and intact human remains have been discovered as recently as 2010. Cheemsan is landscape architecture at it's finest and a spooky example of a cemetery converted to park space. Come learn about Cheesman's intriguing past and the foundations of landscape architecture – perhaps we'll spot some of Denver's original ghosts!
Since this tour is entirely outside, please stay informed of the weather and dress appropriately. The mile-long tour ventures duirng dusk hours and we recommend bringing something to help guide your path. You never know what you might see during the night!
