Washington Park Reviews
The Wash Park neighborhood is a lovely place to live in. It is a very green neighborhood and is great for families. The park is a great places to for more athletic people to train or for families to have picnics or gatherings. The public high school in the area - South High School - is a great choice to send your kids as it has a diverse and inclusive community. Gaylord St. and University Blvd. have an array of shops and restaurants that are locally run and good quality. Overall, Wash Park is an ideal neighborhood for people to raise their families.
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.
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.
Washington Park is a wonderful neighborhood of old brick houses with an East Coast vibe. My roommates and I are all in our early-20s and we love the proximity to fun bars and restaurants on South Broadway. The park itself also adds an active element to the neighborhood. Great for weekday volleyball and evening runs.
