Doors Open Denver CITY PARK TOURS @ Denver City Park
Apr 29 @ 10:30 am – 12:00 pm

Tour #14

Join us for a tour of Denver’s Crown Jewel, City Park, also known from Denver’s early history as the “people’s park.” We’ll explore City Park’s history and also its intrinsic beauty, sculpted by the vision of Denver’s pioneer founders and leading designers, such as Reinhard Scheutze, S.R. De Boer, George Kessler, and Charles Robinson. The Olmsted Brothers landscape firm worked on design elements in City Park in the early 1900’s and praised City Park’s “sense of spaciousness in contrast with the crowding that is elsewhere forced by the high land values of a city.” Photographs of City Park’s “early days” will be passed around.

Guide: Georgia Garnsey, Patty Paul, and Barbara Wright, City Park Friends & Neighbors
Duration: 90 minutes

Meet at the Snowmastodon sculpture at the NW corner of DMNS

Wear comfortable and appropriate clothing and flat walking shoes.
Consider bringing an umbrella, sunglasses, water, and snacks.
Young children must be supervised at all times.
