“WASH PARK” (3 miles south of Downtown Denver): Washington Park is an old Denver neighborhood with mature shade trees, quiet streets, and a mix of well-cared-for tudor-style, bungalow, and high-design modern homes. Known as “Wash Park” for short, the Washington Park neighborhood is distinctive and charming, and is centered on one of Denver’s best urban green spaces. Wash Park attracts residents who can afford the area’s ever-expanding homes. The park covers 165 acres and features a popular running/biking trail, two scenic lakes, and the city’s largest flower garden. The Washington Park East Neighborhood borders the east side of the park and boasts a large degree of bucolic charm, complete with stately homes and tree-framed bungalows. Though still idyllic, West Wash Park to the west of the park has a livelier vibe as it is bordered by the main thoroughfare leading into Downtown Denver. The Wash Park neighborhood is bounded by Alameda, Buchtel, University & Lincoln.
