WASHINGTON PARK
A GREEN PARK AND A COVETED NEIGHBORHOOD
Welcome to Washington Park, Denver. Washington Park is both a neighborhood and a park in the City of Denver, and features a mix of historic and contemporary architecture. The area has lots to offer visitors and residents, both in terms of appearance and recreation. Its historic buildings creates a beautiful tapestry alongside the tranquil lakes, tennis courts and large flower gardens, and the community recreation center provides activities for all ages. In 1899, architect Reinhard Scheutze developed the park by a design influenced by city planner Kessler, the Olmsted brothers and the world-renowned philanthropist “The Unsinkable” Molly Brown. The park was a success from the start, and has always been an immensely popular attraction for both city locals and curious out-of-town visitors. Washington Park is excellent for running, walking and biking, as there are plenty of great trails running throughout the pleasant, unique surroundings. The park was actually chosen as one of the “Great Public Spaces in America” by the American Planning Association, thanks to its many wonderful features and lovely appearance. The neighborhood of Washington Park was developed shortly after the City of Denver, although at the time it was pretty rural in nature. By 1886, Washington Park grew and emerged as Denver’s first suburb. Most of the homes here were built between 1900 and 1940, featuring classic brick construction. In recent years, the Washington park neighborhood has turned into a coveted urban neighborhood, thanks to its central location and generous park space. New residents are often attracted to the convenient access to a multitude of commercial business enclaves and beautiful, quaint surroundings. Shopping strips include the South Gaylord Street and Alameda Avenue, in addition to numerous corner store areas.
