My Clients and Their Neighborhood – Platt Park

Platt Park is well known for the community. As a very family friendly, walk-able neighborhood there are tons of activities to choose from throughout the year. Platt Park has a people’s association that meets periodically and organizes neighborhood activities. As an active member, there are organized happy hour gatherings to get to know fellow members and brainstorm new ideas for neighborhood functions. On top of the happy hours the committee has planned several other fun activities as the spring and summer months are upon us.

In 1860 Platt Park was named after the founder of Platt Paper company, James Platte. It was incorporated as part of Denver South that was formed to limit the creation of more saloons and roadhouses in Denver.

From what used to be an agriculturally based town, Arvada is fast growing while still keeping its country roots.  The area sits just North of I70, East of 93, South of 88th Ave and West of Tennyson St.  Arvada’s commute to Denver, Broomfield and Boulder are short and the escape to the mountains is easy which is why so many people choose to live here!  Arvada Olde Town is filled with tons of unique shops and restaurants and old cobblestone walk ways.  Arvada also has one of the largest Cultural Arts Centers in the country.  Being west of the city and on the way to the mountains, Arvada is home to so many great hiking and biking trails and parks that many residents enjoy utilizing.

Cory Merrill is located just south of Denver’s Bonnie Brae neighborhood. The two areas share several key attributes, including the John Paul II Center, which is home to the Archdiocese of Denver.  Popular Washington Park is within walking distance, where residents enjoy more than 160 acres that has long been a haven for joggers, tennis players, cyclists, dog lovers, and families who enjoy the great outdoors.

Named after the schools in the area, Cory Merrill was founded in 1858 as a dry town because the local citizens did not enjoy the saloons that were taking over the Denver area.
