Its location, at 49th Avenue and Sheridan Boulevard, and elevation of 5,415 feet, offers visitors a view of the Rocky Mountain Front Range and the entire City of Denver.

The long-term vision for Inspiration Point Park is to preserve its historic character and natural qualities while improving existing park amenities and use.

The project includes restoration of a portion of the historic wall, improvement to the western park overlook, installation of a new playground set located within the existing native landscape, and a new picnic site with shade pavilion.
