“Highlands” can refer to quite distinct Denver neighborhoods, and that can cause confusion even though each one offers distinguished homes, surroundings, and amenities. The casual term “the Highlands” will often encompass even other Northwest Denver neighborhoods such as Jefferson Park, Berkeley, Sunnyside, and several historic designations including Potter Highlands and Highland Park!
Highland is northwest of downtown, across highway I-25. This quaint neighborhood is both trendy and charming and is a mix of new and old homes. Included are bungalow-style houses and those with Victorian architecture, which makes it a sought-after destination for business professionals and young families. Its recreational parks feature baseball diamonds and basketball courts along with flower beds and picnic benches for the enjoyment of its various residents.
LoHi or Lower Highlands has become a popular residential area with houses, condos and apartments. Since its founding in 1858, this neighborhood has been well-known for its ethnic diversity, first as a home for German, Scottish, English and Italian immigrants in the 19th century and more recently for its Spanish population. Its history is apparent in the Scottish and Spanish street names and various historic landmarks
West Highland is also in the area that is referred to as North Denver and also located immediately northwest of downtown but has slightly different borders.
