City Park is a neighborhood that embodies the active lifestyle and often trendy character associated with Denver. Adjacent to its namesake greenspace of over 300 acres, it is an attractive locale for young professionals and families seeking an urban living experience with inimitable access to numerous outdoor activities.
The City Park greenspace itself was originally established in 1882 and is Denver’s largest urban park today. The park houses some of Denver’s most popular attractions for both visitors and locals alike in the fabulous Denver Zoo and exciting Denver Museum of Nature & Science. The recently renovated City Park Golf Course offers stunning recreation opportunities as do the miles of trails, making the park a favorite of walkers, joggers, and runners—and their furry canine companions of course. Residents enjoy the availability of countless other outdoor activities as well, including the park’s multiple sports fields, two bodies of water, recreation center, and scenic overlooks, which all help to make it a destination for enjoyment ranging from a competitive soccer game to a relaxing picnic.
The City Park neighborhood is also known for being a culinary haven. Numerous eateries counted as favorites among locals and unique watering holes are within convenient walking distance, as are music venues on East Colfax Avenue such as the historic Bluebird Theater, which was built in 1913 and is listed on the U.S. National Register of Historic Places. The commute to downtown is a breeze by car or bike via nearby Colfax Avenue. Access to the outdoors, entertainment, and other popular locales make it a living opportunity synonymous with Denver’s personality.
