Whittier Reviews

My parents have lived in my neighborhood for 27 years and I have lived there for entire life. I love my neighborhood because I always feel safe and welcomed wherever I go. We live close to one of the biggest parks and high schools in Denver, Colorado, where I have met many of my best friends. The diversity in my neighborhood has been very inspirational to me while I was growing up and as it increases it will continue to inspire the younger kids as they grow up. With the strong sense of community and support I would not want to live anywhere else.

The police are very responsive to any and every emergency call. Feeling safe in my neighborhood is not a huge concern to me because there are rarely any crimes that happen with the community. Occasionally I will see a police officer on duty patrolling through the neighborhood to make sure that everything is in place.
