HistoryA Denver mountain park of 320 acres originally called Dixie Park, added to the system in 1928. It was renamed for Kingsley Pence, Chamber of Commerce and Real Estate Exchange member, and it has picnic grounds and fireplaces. A fatal winter "tubing" accident there in 1978 led to a ban on all tubing in mountain parks. The park, in combination with Corwina and O'Fallon Parks, was listed on the National Register of Historic Places (5JF643) on December 28, 1990.
