At a Glance

Born out of the "City Beautiful" campaign in the early 20th century, the boathouse was constructed in 1913 by architect Jacques Benedict, who also built Chief Hosa Lodge.


The concept of the original park was to provide citizens with parks and facilities to transform Denver into the "Paris of the West". 165 acres were purchased from 1899-1908 for flower beds and garden grounds. Public facilities and park sites were later added to the original plan. 


The Boathouse is the third facility constructed in 1913 on the south shore of the beautiful Smith Lake.
