Things to do

One of the largest draws to living in Congress Park is the abundant green space. Cheesman Park is located on the west side of Congress Park and is highlighted by the Cheesman Memorial Pavilion, a Greek-style monument adorned with three fountains. When no events are being hosted at this park, it is a wonderful place for picnics, exercising with pets, or biking. And because this area used to be a cemetery, many ghost tours are held here regularly.
The Denver Botanic Gardens flank the east side of Cheesman Park, covering 24 acres of green space. This collection of gardens is one of the most visited in the U.S. and hosts a multitude of events, including yoga, art, and gardening classes.
Congress Park Pool has been renovated with a splash pad, new slides, and expanded swimming space. The park surrounding the pool includes tennis courts, pickleball courts, basketball courts, and ball fields, with plenty of open space for exercise and free play.
The Gove Community Garden provides space for 80 gardeners to work together, providing fresh produce for the Congress Park community. The garden has been in operation for over 25 years and often hosts classes about composting and vermicomposting.
