Stapleton is a very nice neighborhood in Denver. The houses are nice and people maintain their yards and houses. The affordable housing units blend right in. All of the shopping and eating places you need are close by, and there are tons of events going on for you and/or your family to attend. Very friendly and safe neighborhood.

Wonderful community with tons of opportunities to enjoy your neighbors and the outdoors. In the summer there are several locations and dates to attend outdoor concerts, outdoor movies, block parties and there is even a neighborhood wide garage sale date. I personally came into the neighborhood at an age older than most kids in the area which was a bummer but I still had many friends from the local schools. It is definitely an area perfect for families, especially with young kids because there are tons of outdoor spaces and parks. Its also a unique neighborhood because the houses are large enough to seem like suburban homes but Stapleton is so centrally located, you feel like you're still in the city. It also has a good range of housing from single family homes to duplexes to apartments to town homes. It's certainly not a cookie cutter looking neighborhood but the homeowners and the HOA keep everything in great shape.
Great place to raise a family. Local dining and shopping. Great parks and family swimming pools. Don't miss out on the summertime concerts and movies in the green!
