Denver, CO: Central

Cheesman Park & Capitol

Cheesman Park is another pleasant urban park in Denver, in the city’s Capitol Hill neighborhood. The Denver Botanical Gardens are at the western edge of the park. A nice run is to start downtown, run along the state Capitol, and then do the ~1.6 dirt outer loop path around Cheesman Park. The run incorporates some of Denver’s lovely homes, the Denver Art Museum, Colorado History Center, & the St. John’s Cathedral.

Add to the run by heading into Congress Park (1/2 mile), or enjoy the historic neighborhoods to the west of the park between Colfax to the north and 8th Ave. to the south. Also, City Park is about 1 mile to the north, and can be incorporated into a longer run.
