Car free day in Cheesman!

Want more fun in the sun this summer at Cheesman Park, free from the roar and pollution of cars and buses? Then mark your calendar for Second Sundays in the Park – one day each month when motorized vehicles are banned from park roadways.

A summertime tradition since 2008, occasional auto-free days were recommended in the most recent Cheesman Park Master Plan. In 2012, auto-free days moved to the second Sunday of May through September so as to minimize conflict with holidays that fall on or near first Sundays. Park roads will be closed from 5:00 am to 6:00 pm to enhance the pedestrian and biking experience in the park. (Note: These hours are the hours that barricades will be blocking entry into the Park via the roads. RTD has different hours for their bus schedules.)

So dust off those rollerblades, bikes and trikes, baby strollers and little red wagons, pull out the kites, volleyball nets and picnic baskets from the closet, and get ready for some old-fashioned, fun-day Sundays in the park!

Please note: If possible, please walk or bike to the park, but if you can’t, Sunday parking is available on 8th Avenue. While cyclists will have free reign of park roads, trails are reserved for pedestrians, strollers, walkers and wheelchairs. Denver Parks and Recreation Rules and Regulations require cyclists to dismount when using park trails. They also require dogs to be on a leash and prohibit skateboards in the Pavilion or fountain areas. Your cooperation is appreciated.

Park road closures are made possible thanks to the efforts of District 10 Councilman Wayne New, Denver Parks and Recreation, and the Cheesman Park Advocacy Group.
