Having lived in Washington Park for most of my life, this is an excellent neighborhood. The park itself is a great place to walk, run, bike, and play frisbee in the grassy areas. The small Gaylord Street boutique and restaurant area is a fun place to spend a Friday evening or Sunday brunch. Pearl Street, in W.P. West, offers classier restaurants and shopping. A fire department and police station are within the neighborhood. The closest high school is South.

Wash Park is an amazing place to live. The park is beautiful and easily accessible. There are lots of great restaurants and shopping nearby, making it feel very quaint. It is a little bit south of Denver, meaning you get away from the crazy hustle and bustle of downtown, but are still super close and get to enjoy all downtown has to offer (about a 15-20 min drive with traffic, but less than 10 minutes without). Cherry Creek is right down the street, as well as DU and the lightrail. I feel very safe living here, which is also a bonus. There are loads of beautiful, old trees lining the streets and throughout the neighborhood, also making it a very appealing place to live. You get a great balance of nature and city.
In a city with lots of beauty, Wash Park is one of the most beautiful places in Denver. Tons of mature trees, safe, family-friendly, and a very educated, yet diverse group of neighbors that actually like each other. One common theme among people that live in Wash Park is the extraordinary amount of value placed on health and quality of life - like I've never experienced anywhere. It's kind of the Boulder of Denver.
