What's your favorite Denver neighborhood and why?

To live in and overall favorite—West Wash Park. It's the most balanced to me. It feels lively while also feeling like a quiet neighborhood. It's relatively clean and has nice sidewalks, homes, little green spaces, and of course Wash Park itself. There are also plenty of restaurants and services in the area, but it's right next to south Broadway if you want some more action. It's close enough to downtown for an easy commute or Rockies game, as well as easy accessibility to I-25.

Lived in this neighborhood for 2 years and it was definitely my fav. If you're a cyclist then being so close to the Speer Blvd trail is money as well.


NotJohnDenver

You hit the nail on the head..living here my biggest/only gripe is that the alleys are small compared to regular Wash Park..but that’s about it (and even that’s being a bit pedantic).

Mar Lee. Because I grew up there and it is relatively unchanged in the last 20 years, which is a big accomplishment. I'm somewhat serious. It has a special place in my heart but definitely not the most beautiful or exciting. Hope it stays that way too.


Mayhem_Industries

Well I'm pretty sure I couldn't afford to live there anymore Congress Park is definitely absolutely perfect to me quiet, beautiful in the middle of everything in the city. Just an oasis.

Sloan’s lake is the perfect fit between downtown and suburb life. It’s fairly quiet at night, but during the day you still have so much access to bars and restaurants.


itpatlanta

Ditto on Sloan's Lake ... and the area around the beautiful lake/park just keeps getting better. I wanted to buy a home near Wash Park, but it is too expensive. So glad I kept looking and discovered Sloan's Lake.

Cap hill. Seriously. It has everything and anything. homeless living adjacent to $5 million mansions. Low-rent, neglected apartments to extreme luxury penthouses. Renters and owners. Old and new. Single family and density. Dive bars. Classy cocktails. Fast food. The fanciest food. Rich. Poor. Diversity. Walk downtown. Walk to the creek. Parks. Donuts. Coffee. History. Old growth trees. Real sidewalks. People walking - always. It is lively. It has character. Businesses. Offices. Government.


Kemachs

Totally. To me it represents the best aspects of Denver - it still has the soul of the city I loved when I moved here.

Preach on

South Park Hill: It has the best tree canopy and old-growth tree density in the city, plus a lovely mix of grand old mansions and quaint homes, with lots of gorgeous gardens and landscaping (Park Hill Garden Walk!) and three gorgeous parkways (17th, Forest, Monaco) with running trails and big trees intersecting the neighborhood. It's right next to City Park, has cute shops and restaurants, and it's a short walk to everything on East Colfax or bike ride to downtown.

Good choice!

what about 23rd

Agree. Came here to say baker


ChazLynnn

The least gentrification. But it’s happening. But you should check out Wah Gwaan if you haven’t!


palikona

Hilltop. Gorgeous homes, streets, beautiful old trees, parks and views from the Sundial.


YakinRaptor

Platt park. You have south broadstreet, the farmers market and are a short distance to both Broadway and wash park. Short commute to the city and also have a light rail station


thewinterfan

Under the Eagle Wind chair at Mary Jane. Yes, I'm counting it


Surfsk8108

Eagle Wind is not on MJ.

If you ever want to destroy your favorite with hoards of people, post detailed directions to it on reddit.


Surfsk8108

it's literally one peak over...is that what you were doing? deliberately deceiving or were you just wrong? edit- subsequent comment proceeds to give detailed travel directions to favorite Denver spots then more in Costa Rica. Thanks for the bit of unintended humor to start my day!


thewinterfan

The last thing we need are more cars clogging up Monarch Pass on their way to WP, bruh

Whittier

Hey man, that's my Unsafeway, show it some respect. Where else can you get liquor, crack, milk, and assaulted all in the same parking lot in less than half an hour? On the bright side, they finally have shopping carts back. Only like 3 of them, but I don't have to make multiple trips to the car anymore.


WeAreNotNowThatWhich

Somebody slashed my bike tires there D: I was inside for like 10 mins getting my meds and then I had to walk home lol. Also I saw multiple rats in the produce section.


aprilmarina

Park Hill. I grew up in Park Hill and still love it though it has changed a lot.


Inside-Associate420

Harvey Park


stolinski

University Park. Low traffic, huge lots, lots of parks.


ElishaOtisWasACommie

Five points because I live there mostly lol. Proximity to downtown and transit, plenty of good restaurants and bars, I've liked my neighbors and I've lived in 4 different apartments in this area


nigelofthornton

Clayton because I lived there first ten years and it’s close enough to other areas. I live in Thornton now and it’s terrible.


Flying_Kickapow2105

Your moms house is my favorite neighborhood


MobyMobyDickDick

Bluebird neighborhood. It's got it all and actually has apartments you can afford.


InternalRaise5250

Congress park!


Item_Legitimate

Center seats of Red Rocks Row #1


dabbing_grandpa

Jefferson Park pre 2020.


Kemachs

Jefferson Park in 2019 was just as bad…


funlickr

They've really destroyed that neighborhood with those sterile boxes


throwawaypf2015

is that because you moved there in 2020?


dizzyfingerz3525

Can you expand on that? Thinking about moving there


throwawaypf2015

east colfax, if only for the cheap handies and free entertainment


LebowskiTheDude_

It’s most certainly entertaining, saw a lady at a bus stop wielding a butcher knife last weekend


nimblerabit

LoDo. Lots of restaurants and bars in walking distance, easy access to public transit (walking to union and taking a train to DIA is great), and good bike trails along cherry creek and the platte.


ProfessorPurrrrfect

City park west? You can’t even walk around there at night if your a woman


Schlawiner24

I don't think it's more dangerous than other parts of the city.


AstralSea8

Why? I live around there and have always felt safe


clicheco

Well, shoot. What happened that I clearly need to be aware of?


throwawaypf2015

there are wild penises that live in the shadows and only come out at night.


Ok_Presentation_5329

I love downtown Arvada. Short lightrail ride downtown, basically crime free, clean, has a ton of restaurants and bars as well as live music. No gang violence, basically no homeless, 15 minutes to hiking in Golden and 15 minutes to downtown. Seems like it’s perfect for my wife and I!


mk7mountain

Agree


pattyswag21

Wash park and cap hill I love to walk around both neighborhoods they’re really cool


BlackJim1929

Everything south of Hampden.
