Denver Neighborhood Diary: City Park

Dear Denver Diary,

What better way to celebrate the arrival of Spring Weather in Denver than a day at City Park, the largest park in the city. You can find this residential area surrounded by the following:  East Colfax, East 23rd Ave, Downing and York. Locals residing in this neighborhood get the luxury of enjoying the 360 days of sunshine here. Not only is it home to the City Park Jazz Festival, but also Denver Zoo and the Denver Museum of Nature & Science. Lots of options to get outside and get active at the tennis courts as well as the baseball, soccer and football fields. Hang out around the two lakes, historical monuments, the picnic sites, or one of the two playgrounds. 

City Park is the perfect place for young professionals or families not quite ready to surrender to suburbia life. Buyers can look to purchase a property anywhere from $455K all the way up to $3M. Monthly rental prices vary from $795 to $3.2K. This urban neighborhood’s real estate is somewhat dense but offers single family homes with yards, attached dwellings, and an abundance of condominiums to choose from. Multi-level victorian homes, craftsman bungalows, a plethora of duplexes, and some rustic/modern condos; City Park will surely have something that meets your criteria.  

If you find yourself in City Park looking to fulfill a brunch craving, head to Syrup for a nice family friendly environment. The Goods on Colfax, a neighborhood favorite, offers the perfect menu catering to your family and friend’s different needs. They also host comedy nights and other events that support the MaxFund, a no-kill, animal adoption shelter that gives the injured, abondoned and abused a second chance. If you’re looking to represent our wonderful state through wardrobe, you can pick up all your Colorado swag at Coloradical.

Denver Neighborhood Diary: Santa Fe Art District

Dear Denver Diary,

After one visit to this neighborhood, we’ll plan on seeing you back here every first Friday of every month. That’s right, we’re taking you to the Santa Fe Art District. This area of Denver is extremely culture rich with Hispanic roots and the beauty really shows through the murals, restaurants and galleries. Known as the “First Friday Art Walks,” Denver Metro residents flock to the Santa Fe Art District on the first Friday of every month to check out the abundance of art exhibitions offering free entries, open late to the public. And for those serious art collectors, they get the chance at a first look at the “Third Friday Collector’s Preview.”

The Santa Fe Art District is loaded with some very desirable commercial real estate. Indulge in a little Latin-inspirited architecture in this area, with all the classic structures coated with vibrant colors and some stunning painted murals. For an innovative entrepreneur or a talented art curator, a live/work space (mixed use property) could have the potential for great success. 

Find somewhere to eat, drink or play all day in this neighborhood. Santa Fe is your go-to for authentic Mexican cuisine. Choose from El Noa Noa, El Taco De Mexico or .Santiago’s Stop by.Crazy Mountain Brewery for your cold, local beer selection. Challenge your friends at The Board Game Republic, the local board game pub. Co-owned and operated by artists, Joe Maxx Coffee Co is the perfect place to relax study, work and of course to get that caffeine fix.
