Join us in April as the Denver Mountain Parks system celebrates Denver's 150th Anniversary and the 75th Anniversary of the New Deal with Doors Open Denver tours of special examples of early parks architecture.
A self-guided auto tour highlights two great periods in park history: the City Beautiful Era (1912-1924) as the park system was built and promoted, and the New Deal Era (1933-1941) influenced by the National Park Service and the Civilian Conservation Corps. On Saturday April 12, from 10 a.m. to 4 p.m., two buildings at the Civilian Conservation Corps camp in Morrison and the Chief Hosa Lodge in Genesee Park will be open to the public by special arrangement.
Go to our Special Event pages to download maps and detailed tour information. Except for the CCC Camp at Morrison and Chief Hosa Lodge, which are only open April 12th, you can do the tour anytime you like.
