Nostalgic Homes presents the Jewels of Highland Home Tour

Basha Cohen | [email protected]

HIGHLANDS ­— Experience a look at Denver’s rich past with the return of the annual Jewels of Highland Home Tour, presented by Nostalgic Homes. Tour guests will experience historic homes never before open to the public. The home voyeurs paradise is on Saturday, October 1 from Noon to  4 pm.
The 2016 Tour features eight Vintage Grand Dames in the Potter Highlands neighborhood of NW Denver. Come see Queen Anne Victorians, Denver Squares, Craftsman Bungalows and experience a “Hard-Hat” tour of the current progress of the Historic Italianate, The Bosler House, that has been a constant source of press and intrigue in Highland Park. In addition, this year’s tour will include a tour of North High School’s landmark 1911 building led by one of the architects who worked on the $ 35 million 2010-11 renovation.
As an added bonus, aside from the history and grandeur of the homes, a celebration of life tribute to one of our own local treasures, and North High’s ultimate mascot, Wally Ginn (who passed away on August 21, 2016), will precede the tour at North from 9:30-11:30 a.m. Start your Jewels of Highland home tour with a tour of the heart and mind of a man who played a gigantic role in the face of North Denver. The celebration will be held at North High School, offering a perfect segue into picking up your tickets and touring the school before you hit the Highlands in search of the past that informs our present.
Tickets are $ 25 and $ 20 for seniors in advance, $ 30 day of tour. Tour check-in on tour day – October 1st is at North High School. Please visit www.jewelsofhighlands.com for more information or to purchase tickets. They are also available at Nostalgic Homes at 32nd & Newton in Highland Square. 100% of the tour proceeds benefit Skinner Middle School, a Denver Public School serving Northwest Denver students since 1922.

A Quick Tour at Denver Colorado Parks

Denver is one of the places in Colorado where there is so much to do. You will never be bored once you set foot in this city, as it houses over 200 parks and 29 recreation centers open for locals and tourists at any time of the year. Here are the five most popular theme parks located in Denver, Colorado. Washington Park, one of the oldest in Denver, was designed by Reinhard Schuetze, a German landscape architect, from 1899 to 1908. Later landscape architects such as Saco Rienk DeBoer and Frederick Law Olmsted, Jr added such features as the elegant boat house and an evergreen grove on the north section. It also includes twentieth century brick houses and 54 flower beds informally arranged. Elitch Gardens Theme Park opened in 1890 in the West Highlands then later moved to downtown Denver in 1994 and became known as Six Flags Elitch Gardens. This 70-acre park features rides such as a roller coaster, carousel, and Ferris wheel, and wave pools for cooling off during summer. Elitch Gardens Theme Park opens in late April and closes after Halloween. Of all Denver Colorado parks and recreation sites, Red Rocks Park and Amphitheatre is the most popular among concert goers. The Beatles and U2 once held live performances at this venue. Geology enthusiasts are also drawn to the eroded sandstone formations. Tourists can bring in their tents or drive around campgrounds with their recreational vehicles to explore Red Rocks and the surrounding foothills. Lakeside Amusement Park, previously named White City, is one of the Denver Colorado parks and recreation sites that welcome family outings. This amusement resort opened in 1908 and was designed by Architect Richard L. Crowther. Just like Elitch Gardens, it features amusement rides such as a cyclone roller coaster, bumper cars, bumper boats, Ferris wheel, and merry-go-round. Gate admission and unlimited rides cost $ 13.75 during weekdays and $ 19.75 during weekends. Unlike other Denver Colorado parks and recreation sites, Denver Bear Valley Park has free admission. It was formally established in 1913 and covers more than 14,000 acres. This spacious park offers a multitude of leisure activities such as family picnics, biking and hiking, as well as soccer and tennis. Denver Bear Valley Park opens daily from 5am to 11pm.
