"A hopefully changing area due to the new, highly recognized, award winning hospitals nearby"

Delmar Parkway has gone through some changes in the last 20-30 years, but through it all, it has remained a centrally located place to live in the Aurora area with diversity in the demographics. The people living in the area have changed slightly through the years but it remains a culturally mixed community. The Delmar Parkway neighborhood has a variety of ethnic businesses and the population consists of white, African-American, Hispanic, and Asian. There are popular businesses such as King Soopers and little local shops selling a variety of things and providing different services.

The homes in this area range from small to average single family homes with a few apartments thrown in the mix. Most of the housing is older, with few new homes to be seen. Although the neighborhood is older, it has the newly added bonus of being near two of Colorado's best hospitals, Children's and University of Colorado Hospital which are both located less than a mile away. When these hospitals relocated and opened several years ago, they brought new life and vigor to the area as a whole. What used to be a run down place is now thriving with new businesses. A bit of this feel has rubbed off on neighboring areas, such as Delmar Parkway, which is a good thing.

Delmar Parkway is blocked in by major arteries of Aurora on three sides. On the south side it is bordered by 6th Avenue, which has long been a problem street for traffic during peak times. Peoria Street on the east side is also a major thoroughfare going from Aurora out to I-70 on the north side. The west side of the neighborhood is bordered by Havana Street which is a major thoroughfare as well. 11th Avenue is the only non-major road connected to the neighborhood. Parking on the streets is good, as it is with most of the businesses located here.

Schools in the area have gone through changes as well during the last 25 years. What used to be average rated schools are now finding themselves on the lower academic scales. Even with the academic problems the school has there is still a lot of school spirit and you can find pride in the community in many places.

Located just to the south of 6th Avenue is Delmar Park. This park has been here for many years and is large and relatively well taken care of. There is a community pool and plenty of large trees to find shade under during the summer.
