About Washington Park

Denver’s well known Washington Park neighborhood surrounds one of Denver’s finest parks – if the not the finest. 165 acres in total, Washington Park includes two lakes and the city’s largest flower garden. The park is the southernmost park in Denver’s historic parkway system – planned in 1907 to connect all of Denver’s parks by parkway avenues throughout the city’s most prestigious in town neighborhoods.

Washington Park or “Wash Park” is home to a mixed demographic, however all who are drawn to the park and its surrounding neighborhoods share a love for the outdoors, urban living and a sense of community. Among the many perks of this special neighborhood, Old South Gaylord Street, a one block “Main Street” includes boutique shops, businesses and several restaurants. Living in Wash Park is truly a lifestyle choice, offering its residents a small town atmosphere in the center of the city.

Architecturally, the neighborhood was originally a diverse mixture of styles to include Craftsman (Bungalows), Tudors, Georgians, Foursquares and Victorians – all built prior to 1940. Today the neighborhood blends an eclectic variety of original homes with newer modern homes. Most of the newer homes have tried to maintain the integrity and charm that has always drawn buyers to live there. In general home prices range from $400K to $2M.
