"The More Affordable Side of Wash Park"

Washington Park West was part of the Washington Park neighborhood until the 1970s, when the city decided to split it into two neighborhoods. The history, architecture, and ambience are largely the same in the two neighborhoods. The owners of the single-family, century-old homes are typically relatively affluent professionals with high-earning jobs downtown or in the Tech Center. They walk their dogs daily, keep nice gardens, and frequent the park. There are some rental homes and apartments to be found, which are quickly snapped up by youngish single or married professionals looking for a slightly quieter alternative to Uptown or Capitol Hill.

Like its eastern neighbor, Wash Park West is a good place to live and considered one of Denver’s more desirable neighborhoods. South Pearl Street, with its scattering of cafes, pubs, and shops, is a good strolling destination even for folks who don’t live in the immediate neighborhood. It’s not a bad bike ride to the DU campus, the more developed commercial district of South Pearl across I-25, or the buzzing section of South Broadway known as SoBo to the north.
