Jefferson Park is named for the 6.7 acre park in the center of the neighborhood. Developers and buyers have their eye on this emerging neighborhood that sits just east of Mile High Field and is conveniently close to downtown. This neighborhood is attractive because the home prices are more reasonable than the neighboring Highlands neighborhoods… yet Jefferson Park is still close to all of the amenities of those neighborhoods and the Central Platte Valley.
Major attractions like Elitch Gardens, The Children’s Museum, Denver’s Downtown Aquarium and the Pepsi Center are all easily accessible from Jefferson park.
If you’re active, the Platte River trail runs along the eastern border of the neighborhood. A favorite of runners and bikers the trail system goes for almost 16 miles.
At the edge of Speer and I-25, Jefferson Park is close to the highway systems and the lightrail C-stop at Mile High Stadium…all of which will give you great access to the rest of Denver.
But if you’re wanting to stay close to home, there are a few restaurant favorites close by including Sassafras… a favorite southern themed brunch destination inside one of the beautiful Victorian houses in the area. You can also get a drink at the few neighborhood bars.
Because of the recent development you’ll find a variety of homes from older historic single family homes to higher density townhouses, condos and apartments. Young people are flocking to the neighborhood for its proximity to Downtown and mixing in with the families that have been in this neighborhood for decades.
