The Cheesman Park neighborhood’s borders are Downing Street, York Street, Colfax Avenue and 8th Avenue.
The Cheesman Park neighborhood is one of Denver’s oldest residential areas. While it has a charming mix of homes, those looking for a high-rise view condo with easy access to parks and downtown will find this neighborhood hard to beat. Named for the park that occupies 80 acres and includes a neo-classical pavilion donated by water baron Walter S. Cheesman in 1910, the Cheesman Park neighborhood is home to one of the real gems of the city, the Denver Botanic Gardens. Enjoy its lush gardens, summer outdoor concerts and holiday events. Quiet residential streets belie this neighborhood’s proximity to the state capitol building and the heart of downtown.
