The Cherry Creek North and South neighborhoods, are located about 5 minutes from downtown Denver. The neighborhood was purchased in the late 1800s by Edwin P. Harmon, and the site was known as the town of Harmon. In March of 1894 the town was annexed into Denver and now includes a thriving shopping and dining district.
Cherry Creek North includes a 16 city-block area with more than 320 galleries, boutiques, restaurants, salons and spas. In addition to the annual Arts Festival, Fillmore Plaza hosts the Films on Fillmore event in the summer and the Cherry Creek Ice Rink in the winter.
Cherry Creek South is the home of Denver’s most prestigious shopping center, The Cherry Creek Mall. The mall is located on the corner of 1st Avenue and Steele Street. The Cherry Creek also bisects the neighborhood and has bike and running trails along its banks. Pulaski Park and Cherry Creek Park are also within walking distance from any part of the neighborhood. Just north of Pulaski Park is the Gates Tennis Center.
There is a wide array of housing options in the Cherry Creek neighborhoods. From townhomes and condos to single-family homes, this area is ideal for both young professionals and empty-nesters.
