Villa Park Reviews

I love the Villa Park neighborhood in Denver. Though somewhat suburban in character, it has a friendly, diverse, working class vibe where I feel I fit right in. I would love to see a little more improvement in some of our local businesses, and we continue to fight developers that want to tear down classic, older homes in favor of cheap (though pricey when sold) shoebox condos. It's part of the mixed blessing we have here with two light rail stations, easy access to downtown, bikeable streets and paths and a myriad of parks.

Villa park is amazing. Small neighborhood with many parks and a trail. You can literally walk any where in this neighborhood; library, the light rail, many stores and places of entertainment.
Compared to when I first moved in, this neighborhood has become an area for homeless people quenching their alcoholism through the liquor store down the street. It is not a prospering neighborhood and seems to become more and more unsafe by the year.
