Washington Park, or Wash Park for short, is the perfectly urban suburb. It bustles with park goers, foodies, and quite happy residents. If the name does not give it away, the Washington Park neighborhood surrounds Washington Park itself and is 4.5 miles away from Downtown Denver and 2 miles from Cherry Creek. This neighborhood is most certainly Denver’s most sought-after neighborhood.
The park is 165 acres and home to two lakes, paddle boat and bike rentals, shade trees, a two-mile jogging path, mountain views, volleyball, soccer, and two formal gardens. All year round you’ll find people walking and running the trails, but in the winter, you’ll see country cross skiers. The sunny days are filled with skateboarders, rollerskaters, rollerbladers, strollers, and even slow-walkers. No matter what time of year, you’ll see people of all ages, any time of the day. The Park could be considered Denver’s “Central Park”. But now we have a neighborhood located in the northeast part of the city called Central Park. HA!!
