The largest residential neighborhood with 12 sub-neighborhoods, Central Park is a picturesque suburban-esk planned-community within Denver city limits.
There are seemingly endless parks (over 50) and open space (with mountain views), sidewalks on every street, 7 pools (some with slides), numerous public and private schools ranging from daycare through high school, a recreation center and several squeaky-clean shopping districts with boutiques, yoga studios, grocery stores, restaurants etc.
The community vibes are strong in Central Park.
There are always community events going on in Central Park – from Easter Egg Scrambles, to speaker series, to Farmers’ Markets. Stanley Marketplace, an old airport hanger that now houses over 50 businesses just outside the Central Park neighborhood boundary, also hosts events such as outdoor movie nights, live music, etc.
But if you are sick of the neighborhood street party/event scene – you can just hop in the car and you are a 15-20 minute drive away from all Downtown Denver, LoHi and RiNo have to offer. And if you really want to get out of dodge – it is also only 20 minutes to the airport terminals. Or you can get on the Central Park commuter rail which has direct connections to Union Station (a 17 minute ride) and as well as to the airport (a 24 minute ride).
The homes vary in size and architectural style (there are six different home builders in working in the area) but most are on small lots with alley garages, front porches, have energy efficient features and were built in the early 2000s. Buyers get a good bang for their buck here compared to other areas – a 3,500 square foot move-in ready home for under $1,000,000 is possible here. Apartment, condos, live/work spaces and duplexes are also available in Central Park.
