"A neighborhood bordered by busy streets"

Federal Heights is home to Water World, the largest water park in the nation. This area also has homes, apartments and a mobile home park. The median home price is around $175,000. The schools are all rated average for state testing standards. On the northern part of Federal Heights there have been some break-ins in recent years, while the middle section of this area does have some crime. The southern area of Federal Heights is mostly businesses, with a few houses in the mix.

There is a small hospital, St. Anthony North, located just on the outskirts of the neighborhood. All of the streets bordering this neighborhood are major arteries that can get really backed up with traffic, especially during rush hour.

There are some nice spots to look at, but there are also some more run down parts which I try to stay away from. Parts of certain streets look dirty and unkept.
Pros
  • Water World
Cons
  • crime
  • traffic

"Federal Heights is not a great area"

Federal Heights is a small suburb just north of Denver named after the main drag--Federal Boulevard. The area has a reputation for being kind of rough and ran down and is a place that new people moving to Denver land because of the may low rent apartments. The main road has really in the heart of the area and the many highways that pass around for by the area working their way to Denver.

There are some pretty seedy bars and restaurants in the area. Water World is in Federal Heights, a really big great water park that people from the entire Front Range flock to for summer water fun. Water World is the only good memory I have of the area.
Pros
  • close to downtown
  • close to Denver airport
  • Water World
Cons
  • seedy
  • crime
  • traffic
