Park Hill is a large, predominantly residential neighborhood that boasts the largest share of Denver’s tree-lined parkways. The parkways were developed during the height of the “City Beautiful” movement and are now enjoyed by walkers, runners and cyclists alike. The first homes in the Park Hill neighborhood were developed in the early 1900′s. Residential development continued to increase after WWII with home styles changing from early bungalows and Denver Squares to post WWII Capes.
Today, Park Hill is particularly attractive to families who want to live in the city but require more square footage and larger lots. A wide array of home prices makes the neighborhood affordable for many budgets.
Park Hill is currently connected to the rest of the city by several bus and bike routes, but after the completion of the FastTracks East Corridor commuter train route, Park Hill will have a straight shot to both downtown and Denver International Airport.
