The Denver Botanic Gardens, along with nearby Cheesman Park and Congress Park, sit atop what used to be Mount Prospect cemetery. Although the majority of bodies were removed in 1893, the interred continued to be removed as late as the 1950s. As recently as 2010, graves were uncovered during renovation of the park's irrigation and sprinkler systems.

even in the rain, really enjoyed the beautiful gardens and sculptures. Went with an 11 year old who enjoyed it as much as I did. Ate outside when the rain stopped at one of the cafes, and the wood fired pizza was tasty.
