Cheeseman Park

Cheeseman Park, Denver

The neighborhood in one sentence: Cheesman Park itself is the gathering grounds for the people of Capitol Hill, where on any given Sunday you can find volleyball nets, hula hoops, picnics and more as runners and cyclists circle the greenery. One side of the park runs along the Denver Botanic Gardens and the large houses that line the rest of the park are worth gawking over as you walk, run or ride by them.

Favorite places and best-kept secrets: The quaint bistro Potager is tucked into a side street on the way to Cheesman and is worth all the calories. It’s attached to the building that houses the newly-renovated Park Tavern and its new rooftop deck. Looking for a sweet treat? Grab a scoop at Licks or a margarita at Las Margs.

What are transportation and parking like in the neighborhood?: RTD buses run through the neighborhood, so getting to and from downtown or other metro neighborhoods is fairly easy. Parking isn’t great; you’ll be hard-pressed to find a spot between 10 p.m. and 7 a.m.

Better for buyers or renters?: Renters. Homes in this neighborhood are extremely expensive (think millions) so buying here is out of the price range for most people. There still are relatively affordable finds ($850-$1,100) right around the park. A two-bedroom apartment is the best bang for you buck.

What else should people know about the neighborhood?: Cheesman Park was a cemetery until it became one of Denver’s most popular parks.
