CONGRESS PARK
A LARGE PARK AND HISTORIC DISTRICT
Welcome to Congress Park, Denver.
This neighborhood is home to around 10,000 people, housed in approximately 6,000 households. Originally, this area was known as Cemetery Hill, after the City Cemetery. However, in 1887 the City of Denver established a reservoir on the land that previously belonged to part of the cemetery. Eventually, this land became redesigned as a park and Congress Park was born. The park initially encompassed what now comprises Cheesman Park, Denver Botanic Gardens and the Denver Water Board. Today, York Street, Colfax Avenue, Colorado Boulevard and Sixth Avenue bound the neighborhood. Congress Park features plenty of recreation including eight tennis courts, several athletic fields, a playground, a picnic area and a public pool. On the west side of York St, you'll find the lush Denver Botanic Gardens situated in Cheesman Park. The neighborhood also houses the Communications Center of the City and County of Denver, as well as the largest historic district in Denver; the 7th Avenue Historic District. The district was developed at the height of the City Beautiful Movement and features landmarks like the Doud-Eisenhower Home, Governor's Mansion and Foster-Mccauley-Symes House.
