City Park

Named for its 320-acre park, this neighborhood blends entertaining musical venues, neighborhood bars and restaurants, the Denver Museum of Nature and Science, and the Denver Zoo. City Park itself features a golf course, gardens, duck lakes, a boathouse and grassy areas for barbecues, sports, and summer concerts. Several bus routes serve the neighborhood, making it easy for downtown workers to commute. A range of housing styles exist in City Park, from contemporary urban residences to historic homes. Denver's City Park area is located just northeast of downtown Denver, south of 23rd Avenue to Colfax, and west of York Street to Colorado Boulevard. People are returning to the City Park real estate community because of its close proximity to the downtown area and the unique lifestyle it offers.  The neighborhood has also seen new residential and commercial developments, including at the former site of Mercy Hospital.
