The Platt Park neighborhood is located just west of the University of Denver and is home to the Old South Pearl Business District which is an 18 block corridor on Pearl Street that offers a plethora of shops and restaurants catering to students. Pearl Street also hosts annual street festivals, farmer’s markets, and even a Mother Day 5K.
A light rail stop at Louisiana and Pearl makes the Platt Park neighborhood just a quick ride from downtown Denver and the Denver Tech Center.
