Effortless access to several bustling Denver locales along with a distinct charm all its own combine in Congress Park. A favorite of young professionals seeking dual city proximity and residential tranquility, Congress Park is a special urban neighborhood that is both much lauded and much desired.
Incorporated into Denver in 1889, Congress Park was originally known as Capital Heights and retains much of its historic character. Today, the locale plays host to a stunning portion of the historic East 7th Avenue Parkway with its spectacular, distinguished homes and lots. Paired with these gorgeous properties are a diverse collection of brick bungalows, Queen Anne abodes, and Denver Squares that give the area inimitable architectural intrigue. Tree-lined streets offer wonderful walkability while contributing to the overall peaceful residential feel.
Congress Park is not without its share of exciting and loved community amenities and outdoor spaces. Its namesake park includes tennis and pickleball courts as well as a popular outdoor pool, and additional greenbelts run throughout the locale. The nearby Denver Botanic Gardens and City Park provide additional outdoor recreation opportunities, all within an easy bike ride or jaunt. Unique and eclectic restaurants, cafes, shops, and boutiques add flair and personality, and access to concerts and other regular celebrations of art and film provide nourishing entertainment. The area’s abundant public transportation makes commuting a breeze—including wonderful proximity to Cherry Creek and downtown—giving the area a highly connected feel that pairs beautifully with its quaint, yet energetic individual nature.
