Platte Park

This unique Denver neighborhood is tucked between I- 25/Mississippi Ave. on the north, Evans on the south, with Downing to the east and Broadway to the west.
The majority of the homes were built before 1939 and blocks are filled with bungalows that have inviting porches, story and a half homes, a few Victorians, even an occasional original farm house. A choice location close to the University of Denver, Washington Park with easy access to Light Rail has renewed this neighborhood?s popularity. So now one finds brand new homes and town homes mixed in with the quaint original dwellings.
Platte Park is home to many specialty shops, boutiques and restaurants catering to students and young families. Empty-nesters also enjoy this compact environment. A consistently highly rated Sushi restaurant is located on Old South Pearl Street which is the center of the commercial activity including several upscale eateries, as well as antique stores, bicycle shops, clothing stores and shops featuring specialty home d�cor items.
Many professionals have chosen to work in this area and have set up office by converting older residence to accommodate their field of business. Others work in the traditional environment of offices in newer constructed buildings.
Easy walk ability to the Park, restaurants and shopping areas gives Platte Park residents a sense of neighborhood in the middle of the city. Home prices in Platte Park are less than in some other nearby popular neighborhoods, so there are homes for first time home buyers available here!
The Platt Park People’s Association (3PA), a city of Denver Registered Neighborhood Organization, serves nearly 3,000 homes and the businesses in the neighborhood. 3PA membership is open to all residents and as well as business and property owners within these boundaries.
