Neighborhood Focus: City Park
The City Park neighborhood is situated in northeast Denver and surrounds Denver’s largest and most celebrated park.
What do we love about the neighborhood? For starters, there’s the park itself … comprising 330 acres and created in 1880, City Park boasts miles of running paths, tennis courts, playgrounds, several lakes, lots of trees, a fabulous boathouse, plus it’s home to the Denver Zoo and the Denver Museum of Nature and Science.
Every summer, City Park hosts the music concert series “Jazz in the Park”, on Sunday evenings. Locals are encouraged to bring their picnic setups and join the hundreds of others for this free event.
Summer Sundays also feature the City Park Farmer’s Market, located on the Esplanade near East High School. The market offers a mix of locally grown Colorado produce, plus gourmet food vendors.
In 2017 we’ll see the completion of the Carla Madison Recreation Center, located at the corner of Josephine and Colfax. This center will feature cardio and weights areas, lap and leisure pools, and a dog park. You can follow the City of Denver website for updates.
Surrounding City Park you’ll find stately turn-of-the-century victorian houses, tree-lined streets, and a variety of local businesses. Some of our favorite restaurants and drinking establishments are just around the corner: Tommy’s Thai, Mezcal, Pete’s Kitchen, Syrup, PS Lounge, Bastien’s, Goosetown Tavern, Caffe Sanora and SAME Cafe.
The City Park neighborhood is bike- and pedestrian-friendly. Parking opportunities vary, and street parking is fairly easy, depending on the block. It’s only a few miles to downtown Denver, and easy access to highways I-70 and I-25.
