Prior to Mayor Speer’s City Beautiful Plan of the late 1800’s, the Congress Park neighborhood was know as Cemetery Hill. With the relocation of the grave site and the development of the park, Congress Park has become one of Denver’s most sought after neighborhoods.
From the Grand homes along 7th Ave Parkway to the Denver Squares, bungalows, Victorians, Art Deco apartments and high rises, Congress Parks has the most exciting and eclectic mix of architecture.
The revitalization of historic Colfax Ave and corridors like 6th Ave and 12th Ave between Cook St and Monroe St offer residents of the neighborhood a multitude of shopping, restaurants, retail and yoga. Yet, if you can’t find what you need in the ‘hood, Congress Parks’ central location can get you anywhere in the city in minutes.
The park itself is not only enjoyed by its own community but attractively lures other neighborhood residents with the abundance of tennis courts, an outdoor public swimming pool, play ground and multiple athletic fields.
Enjoy a relaxing afternoon picnic or take a stroll through the neighborhood to the nearby Denver Botanical Gardens. Either way you’ll find this is a perfect place to call home.
