Welcome to Washington Park Neighborhood
Washington Park, or Wash Park as the locals call it, is one of the best neighborhoods to live in Denver. With one of the lowest crime rates in the city, beautiful single family homes and abundant outdoor activities, you can see why so many people love it here.
Where It’s Located
The Washington Park neighborhood is located in South Central Denver. It’s central location makes it close enough to enjoy downtown, Capitol Hill and trendy Cherry Creek, but still far enough removed that it has a distinct residential neighborhood feeling.
The neighborhood itself is divided into two sections: East Wash Park and West Wash Park. East Wash Park is known for its gorgeous single-family homes and quiet family atmosphere. West Wash Park has more of a hip, young crowd with lots of bars, coffee shops and tattoo parlors.
Obliviously, the most well-known attraction is the Washington Park. The local like to compare it to Central Park in New York City, which may be somewhat of an exaggeration but it is quite beautiful. Covering 165 acres, it is one of the largest parks in Denver. Joggers, cyclists and dog-walkers all flock here, and in nice weather, volleyball nets are set up and open to the public to play a few games.
Broadway Street is also a popular area to hang out, both day and night. Try starting at Alameda and Broadway and walking north – you’ll find plenty of coffee shops, bookstores and cute boutiques to browse.
