Home of the Denver Zoo, The Denver Museum of Nature and Science, a rose garden, a water feature, a golf course, and the large and picturesque Ferril Lake, the City Park neighborhood is Denver’s crown jewel. The neighborhood is located between 23rd Avenue, Colfax, Colorado Boulevard, and York, and City Park real estate is some of the most eclectic around. The homes surrounding the park are a rare blend of historic and modern, single family and duplexes, with a stretch of luxury condos and townhomes along 17th Avenue overlooking the park.

Residents are diverse as well. Many live here to be close to the park of course, but some come for the short commute to Downtown Denver and the proximity to Colfax, with its lively mix of music venues, bars, restaurants, and eclectic shops. Denver’s famed independent bookstore, The Tattered Cover, relocated here in 2006 and has been a magnet for other independent businesses. City Park is also home to Denver’s first high school, East High, a landmark built in 1925.

Notable events in the park include City Park Jazz in the summer, the summer concert series, and Black Arts Festival. But you can enjoy the stunning view of the snow-dusted Rocky Mountains behind the city skyline almost any time.
