City Park & City Park South

City Park South is one of Denver’s most charming neighborhoods. Its architectural diversity includes stately Denver Squares, gracious Victorians, handsome Tudors, and finely crafted Bungalows. It’s a great neighborhood for walking the pedestrian friendly sidewalks lined with mature trees, strolling to a quaint bistro for lunch or coffe, and for visiting neighbors as you relax together on the many inviting front porches

Located two miles east of downtown Denver, City Park is the crown jewel of the Denver Park System. Its makeup includes Ferril Lake, the Denver Zoo, the Museum of Nature and Science, the IMAX Theater, the Gates Planetarium, tennis courts, a golf course, and the largest green space in Denver. In one sweeping view you behold the shimmering lake, downtown skyline, and snow-capped Rockies. And it’s all just steps from your front porch! The neighborhood boundaries of City Park South, the residential area of City Park, are Colfax to 17th Ave, York Street to Colorado Boulevard. Residents of South City Park will tell you that this is the best place to live in the entire Denver Metropolitan area. Just minutes east of downtown and north of Cherry Creek, it is ideally situated for people who enjoy the finest cultural, sports, shopping and dining attractions that Denver has to offer. You can leave the car in the garage. Two major bus routes take you downtown. Hop on the 20 from 17th Avenue or the 15 from Colfax and you will be effortlessly
transported to the Civic Center, 16th Street Mall, LoDo, or a few short blocks from Coors Field and the Pepsi Center.

With luxurious new high-rises, condominiums and apartments, there is a growing vibrancy to complement the traditional charm of the neighborhood. Residents can walk to coffee shops, businesses and restaurants on the portion of Colfax bordering South City Park, which is known as the Bluebird District. The Tattered Cover and Twist & Shout, the most venerable independent book and record stores in Colorado, are a few blocks west. The Denver Film Society also recently opened the three-screen Denver FilmCenter/Colfax at the historic Lowenstein Theater site contributing to the area’s resurgence as a cultural center.
