Genesee Park – Golden CO

Description

Genessee is the largest park in the Denver Mountain Parks system. It was established in 1913.

“During the New Deal, two Civilian Conservation Corps (CCC) camps operated near Genesee beginning in 1935. The large stone shelter near Genesee Mountain, completed in 1939 by the CCC workers, still provides space for group picnicking and family or organization events. With a capacity of 300, it is the largest shelter in the Mountain Parks; reservations for use are available by fee.”  (http://mountainparkshistory.org)
