History of Denver's City Park: City Park is one of Denver's first parks and oldest public spaces.Inspired by English pastoral gardens and Central Park in New York City,Henry Meryweather designed the original park in 1882. Many of the original aspects including roads and walkways still exist today. After the turn-of-the-century, City Park benefitted from Denver's investment in the nation's City Beautiful movement. During this period, many of the existing sculptures were added, including the sculptures that mark the park entrances. In recent years, City Park has seen a noticeable reinvestment, much of which was brought on by the 2001 City Park Master Plan, titled “Revitalizing the Legacy of City Park.” This revitalization brought City Park back to its original reputation as one of Denver's prettiest parks.
