"Family neighborhood with a great green space"

Rosedale is a nice south Denver neighborhood with an excellent park space occupying most of it. It is representative of the areas in this part of the city. There are shops and restaurants, family homes, peace and quiet, and a popular green space. Housing here is not cheap. It is comparable to many residential neighborhoods in the city, with some housing in the 200 K range, but most homes in the 300s.

Harvard Gulch is a large and popular park space. There are walking trails and a rec center. There is also a fun 9-hole, par 3 golf course here. It's not surprising that this is a desirable family neighborhood. I played this course a couple of times when I was trying my hand at golf, and remember a pretty, quiet neighborhood and a feeling of space and green to it. The golf game didn't last, but the impression did.

One of the attractions of South Denver is the good schools, and this neighborhood has access to them. It is a long-ish but not unrealistic commute to downtown for professionals who work there. Within the neighborhood, there are pleasant walks and restaurants that are local favorites. Also typical of this part of the city is the mellow feel that lacks the excitement of the east, north, and northwest neighborhoods. This area appeals to families looking for peace and quiet.
