Began in 1809. John and Mary Elitch transformed their farm on the outskirts of this little 30-year-old city Denver into a vibrant oasis filled with attractions and wonders. 
Elitch Gardens holds a special place in Colorado’s history as it witnessed significant milestones. It was home to the first zoo west of Chicago, the birthplace of Colorado’s first symphony orchestra, and even housed the first motion picture theater. This sprawling sanctuary also hosted the legendary Trocadero Ballroom, where locals danced and romanced.

The story of Elitch Gardens is also entwined with the remarkable journey of Mary Elitch. Just one year after the couple opened their gates to the public, John Elitch, passed away. She took on the responsibility of running and managing this thriving summer resort. In doing so, she became a successful businesswoman and gained recognition as the only woman in the world to own and manage such an esteemed destination.

Just two short years after Elitches opened its gates, the theater made its grand debut, setting the stage for a century of unparalleled entertainment.

Elitch Theatre was synonymous with excellence. It quickly gained a reputation as a beacon of first-class entertainment, attracting acclaimed actors and actresses from around the globe. Like Sarah Bernhardt, Douglas Fairbanks Sr., Cecil B. DeMille, Grace Kelly, Lana Turner, and even Mickey Rooney! These larger-than-life figures graced the stage.  

Ah, “Those were the Days my friend, I thought they’d Never End!”

With the growth of Denver and Elitchs in 1995 Elitch Gardens relocated from its original location near downtown Denver to a new site along the picturesque Platte River Valley. (It is all concrete so can you call it a “Garden”?)  This allowed for even more thrilling rides and attractions to be added, including water slides and interactive play.

Today, Elitch Gardens stands as a premier amusement park offering endless excitement for visitors from near and far. With heart-pounding roller coasters, refreshing water rides, entertaining live shows, delicious food options, and much more — there’s something for everyone to enjoy.

While I understand the appeal of adrenaline-pumping attractions, I can’t help but long for those simpler times.
