- Neighborhood in Denver, CO
University Hills Reviews
Rating 4.25 out of 5 8 reviews
Overall, the U-Hills neighborhood is a good place to live. It has easy access to a recreation center, and it is near the Highline Canal Trail. Also, it is easy to access US-285 and I-25 from the neighborhood.
I have lived here for a years and LOVE IT. Everything is walkable. Easy access to downtown. Very very safe! However, very expensive but the location is worth it!
We moved from the very boring suburbs not long ago. Sure, you pay almost 2x as much for a house in Denver as you do out there, but there is a ton to do within walking distance -- movies, shopping, library, art stores, a pottery place, farmer's market -- you name it. The neighborhood still has a lot of the original residents from the 1950s who are now in their 90s, as well as many young professionals (both single and coupled). Reminds me of the neighborhood in "Sandlot". Love the diversity of ages and backgrounds. Wish U hills North had a park like U Hills south has. :-( Other than that, really love it here.
There are plenty of stores nearby to help with shopping, a local library, several parks, and emergency services are all nearby.
the influx of people + homeless people seems to mean more crime in wealthier areas that don't generally see crime in the same fashion.
In my immediate area, there aren't very many options unless you want to work in the service industry.
There are 2 competing grocery stores within 2 blocks of my home. There aren't any department stores or home goods stores but there is an Ace Hardware within stumbling distance. There are a lot of Mediterranean and Middle Eastern restaurants around here.
