Observatory Park offers the charm of a college town, the convenience of a central location, and the serenity of a traditional neighborhood where lovely historic homes and mature shade trees line picturesque streets and neighbors visit from front porches on summer evenings. The observatory, a coveted resource for amateur astronomy buffs, delivers the marvels of the universe right to your door. Observatory Park is also home to Denver University’s gorgeous golden bell tower and the University’s Ritchie Center and successful athletic programs.
Observatory Park, also known as University Park developed around the University of Denver in the 1880’s all thanks to a Potato Farmer and one Bishop’s wife!
Observatory Park is home to Denver’s Chamberlin Observatory. With tons of public events, there are great opportunities to take a closer look at all of the planets and the moon. One Saturday a month, the observatory holds a first quarter moon open house – weather permitting. On Tuesdays and Thursdays at 8:30 PM in the Summers you are able to reserve a time slot to see the moon and planets.
With this neighborhood being home to the University of Denver, there are always tons of events going on, whether that be cheering on Denver Pioneers in Hockey, Lacrosse, Gymnastics and many other sporting events or enjoying a show at the Newman Center. Visit the University’s event’s calendar to see what is happening this week!
