Overview

Denny Park has the double distinction of being both the city's first cemetery and its first park. Fortunately, when the city turned the cemetery into a park in 1884, it thoughtfully replaced the graves with rhododendrons and azaleas. The terrain is actually 60 feet lower than it once was, due to great Denny Regrade project, which began in 1889 and leveled some of the hills in the area. Still, the city kept the park, and today the parks department has its headquarters here.
