Building upon documentation developed for TCLF's What's Out There Denver guide, join us for FREE, expert-led tours of more than two dozen landscapes in the Denver area.
Parks and open spaces have been invaluable components of the city's design and development since Denver's earliest days. This diverse open space network leverages the Rocky Mountain range and the American Prairie grasslands with unrivaled designed landscapes in the Beaux Arts and Picturesque styles—with Modernist and Postmodernist designs complementing the suite.
With designs by George Kessler, S.R. DeBoer, and Olmsted Brothers forming the foundation of the expansive Denver Park and Parkway System (listed on the National Register of Historic Places in 1986) and the 14,000-acre Denver Mountain Parks System (listed in 1990), later work by Dan Kiley, Lawrence Halprin, Hideo Sasaki, and I.M. Pei has ensured that the city is uniquely modern. Tours of these and other designs will demonstrate that the Mile High City is a diverse and significant collection of cultural landscapes that is unparalleled.
This event is now complete. We hope you enjoyed the tours.
