Denver Parks Collection

The Denver Public Library has collected materials that document the growth of Denver’s park system, including landscape drawings, reports, correspondence, surveys, architectural plans for parks structures, greenhouse records, ledgers, photographs and maps. These 15,000 items, drawn largely from the Department of Parks and Recreation, constitute one of the largest collections in the Western History and Genealogy Department. Covering the years 1862 to 2001, the archive has a finding aid to assist researchers in locating the specific park and item they need. More...
