The Alamo Placita Neighborhood

Alamo Placita is a tucked away gem of a neighborhood encircled by Denver Country Club, West Wash Park, and Capitol Hill. Its central location, lush gardens, and historic homes make it a desirable core neighborhood with easy access to downtown, Cherry Creek, and Wash Park. The neighborhood is named after Alamo Placita Park which is located on the north side of Speer Boulevard between Ogden and Emerson Streets. In Spanish, it means Little Place of the Cottonwoods, so named for the cottonwood trees that naturally grew here. A few of the old trees can still be found in Alamo Placita Park and in the neighborhood. It is now a historically designated area in Denver and is very charming, beautiful and central neighborhood. The park for which this neighborhood is named has both a playground and a basketball court and blooms with flowers all summer long.

There is a variety for real estate available in the Alamo Placita neighborhood. The styles of architecture range from Queen Anne Style Victorians, Denver Squares, Cottage Style homes, to Bungalows. Over the last several years, due to the popularity and central location, homes have been appreciating in value. This neighborhood is within walking distance of the Governor’s Mansion, restaurants, and shops.
