Why Washington Park Real Estate is Coveted

Washington Park Real EstateConsidering Denver for the place you call home? If you are looking for a neighborhood in the heart of Denver that not only offers a variety of interesting architecture in individual homes, but also has a strong sense of community and amazing aesthetic beauty, Washington Park might be just the place for you. Washington Park real estate offerings are worthy of close consideration!

One of the outstanding features of this neighborhood and its name sake is the popular Washington Park itself – a public park that in 2012 was ranked as one of America’s Great Places in America: Public Spaces. The park covers 165 acres and includes lakes, tennis courts, flower gardens (the two biggest in the city!) and lots and lots of green space for lawn sports and relaxation. It’s a popular spot… for both being active and for simply enjoying the people and all that surrounds it. It is the kind of place you go to and feel a part of things – even if you are just people watching or staring off at Mt. Evans in the background – it’s a fantastic experience.

What you’ll find as you wander the tree-lined streets is that this area of Denver brings a great combination of urban and neighborhood feel. There is a great mix of young people and families, and you’re close to I-25 and the light rail. It’s easy to get to about anywhere in Denver – but do you need to?  It also boasts the ability to meet your restaurant, bar, gallery and shopping desires right there, close to home. It is a highly desirable area of Denver.

Washington Park neighborhoods offer options of homes – from historic to contemporary, from duplexes or bungalows – but you’ll find predominately Denver bungalow and Tudor style. The East section tends to have larger lots and larger newer homes. People are often drawn to this highly sought out neighborhood because of Old South Gaylord Street – Denver’s second oldest shopping and dining district, home to trendy shops and eateries. Homes closer to the park are also higher priced. You can learn more about West Washington Park by taking a look at their neighborhood association website.
