"Suburban feel in southeast Denver"

You can read my review of Harvey Park to get some more input on this neighborhood. I'm admittedly strongly biased toward the east central neighborhoods, so I don't spend much time in southwest Denver. There are many nice family homes on green blocks in this spot. There is a bit more of a mixed flavor here than in the more unidimensional suburbs, which I would consider a big plus.

There are also good nearby park spaces with golf courses and green spaces. One of the best things about the southwest areas is the views of downtown and the mountains from any open space. On the 4th of July, almost every fireworks display on the Front Range is visible. Overall, this area has an air of contentment about it. I get the feeling that those who live here really enjoy their part of town.

There are shopping options right in the neighborhood, and access to the major thoroughfares. Commuting either to downtown or to the Tech Center can take a good chunk of time out of your day because of the heavy highway traffic. Housing is reasonably inexpensive for a safe area within the city, and there are some nice detached homes with yards. If you are considering moving your family to Denver, this is an area worth checking out.
  • Relatively inexpensive
  • Nice middle range homes
  • golf courses with views
  • longer commutes
  • flat feel to the retail areas
