Referred to as East Denver, Park Hill is divided into three distinct areas, Park Hill North, South and Northeast and is one of the most diverse, popular and sought after neighborhoods in Denver. Just 10 minutes to Downtown and Cherry Creek, Park Hill is an ideal location for those desiring a serene atmosphere with the proximity to urban activity.

Original growth and planning contributed to the most extravagant boulevards and parkways in the entire city. The two most notable thoroughfares, 17th Ave Parkway and Montview Boulevard, are lined with grandiose mansions of Dutch Colonial, Victorian and Mediterranean architecture. Stately, well kept properties, lush medians and majestic tree-line streets exaggerate everything in sight.

SOUTH PARK HILL boarders historic Colfax Ave where shopping is plentiful and there is and abundance of great restaurants and entertainment.

NORTH PARK HILL includes the noteworthy shopping block of 23rd and Kearney offering everything from a wine store and coffee shop to one of Denver’s best restaurants, Tables. 23rd and Dexter also covers your neighborhood needs with renowned Cherry Tomato Restaurant, a bookstore, flower shop, cleaners, dog grooming and Spinelli’s Market.

NORTHEAST PARK HILL is predominately industrial north of 38th Ave and has direct access to I – 70.

“I love the old, established feeling of my neighborhood. In the years I’ve lived here the neighborhood community has become increasingly closer with more home owners moving in and neighbors helping each other. The proximity to the highway, airport, Downtown and any shopping needs I have is what makes Park Hill the place I want to be.
