The Park Hill Neighborhood

Designed to showcase Mayor Speer’s City Beautiful program, Park Hill, located on high ground east of City Park, remains on e of the most coveted neighborhood in Denver. Shaded by stately American Elms, Park Hill’s exquisite thoroughfares, 17th Avenue, Forest, and Montview parkways, are among the most beautiful in the city. Today’s active families will find the charms of this vibrant community to be as compelling as ever.

Park Hill’s international mix of families enjoy short strolls to some of Denver’s finest cultural attractions and shopping. On the west is lake-graced City Park, home to the highly regarded Museum of Nature and Science, Gates Planetarium, IMA Theatre, Denver Zoo, and Municipal Golf Course. Behind the museum, the “H-2-Odyssey” fountain delights children each summer with its sprightly array of water jets shoot geyser-like sprays high overhead.

Although residents enjoy a serene lifestyle sheltered from the urban hubbub, Park Hill is just 10 minutes by car from Downtown, world-renown Cherry Creek Mall Shopping District, and countless retail stores, restaurants, and hotels along Colorado Boulevard.

The Observatory Park Neighborhood

Observatory Park offers the charm of a college town, the convenience of a central location, and the serenity of a traditional neighborhood where lovely historic homes and mature shade trees line the picturesque streets. With Denver University being one of the main focal points of Observatory Park you will find this to be a vibrant neighborhood. The newly streamlined I-25 corridor and Light Rail whisks commuters to Downtown, the Central Platte Valley, Denver Tech Center, and Park Meadows Mall. University, Colorado, and Yale also speed residents on their way, but many opt for a quiet stroll to one of the area’s many delightful cafes, coffee bars, restaurants, convenience food outlets, and myriad retail stores.

Reminiscent of old-world villages, the quaint shopping districts at Old South Gaylord and South Pearl Street, offer bookshops, galleries, boutiques, and restaurants. At University Hills Plaza, Chez Artiste, a tri-plex movie house, showcases the finest independent films and foreign language cinema. For first-run features, there’s Colorado Center Stadium 9, at Colorado and I-25 next door to Dave & Buster’s arcade and restaurant. Steeped in Denver history, Observatory Park, a family oriented neighborhood with a dash of spice, offers a zesty blend of modern and traditional lifestyles and architecture.
