My Clients and Their Neighborhood – Washington Park

1200px-Washington_Park_Denver

Washington Park neighborhood is one of Denver’s oldest neighborhoods, and continues to be one of its most popular.  Developed in the late 1800’s, the area around the large park grew to be one of Denver’s most attractive areas because of the location and the fun outdoor activities that are available. Now, filled with classic Bungalows and Victorian-Era homes, Washington Park remains highly desirable due to its central Denver location and surrounding shopping, dining and entertainment options. The Cherry Creek North district is close by, as well as Bonnie Brae and Belcaro. South Gaylord Street sits in the neighborhood with tons of fantastic local restaurants and shops for everyone to enjoy, and of course the ever popular “Wash Park” provides year round recreation options.

Silverman family

1. How did you choose your neighborhood? With our kids approaching elementary school age we were looking for a neighborhood with good schools, a strong sense of community, closer proximity to their expanding set of activities and to reduce Amy’s commute time. We had heard really positive things about Heritage Greens, which is an established neighborhood with a nice mix of young and older families and then found the perfect house. It ended up being a no brainer and the best decision we’ve made for our family.

2. What is your favorite feature of your location? The pool and tennis courts – really brings the community together as well as a number of fun social activities. We both have picked up tennis again and our kids participated on the swim team the last two years. Also, nice having South Suburban golf course in our backyard. It’s like country club living without the dues.

3. How long have you lived in the area?  Two years.

4. Where is your favorite local spot?  Big Bills Pizza and Menchie’s Frozen Yogurt – Great combo for a family night out.

5. Use one word to describe your neighborhood. Social.

6. Is there anything else you wish to share about your neighborhood?  We also enjoy the proximity to a number of parks, the High Line canal, shopping and restaurants at the Streets of Southglenn and Park Meadows. And, we have easy access to I-25, 470 and the light rail.
