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.
