Congress Park - Denver Lifestyle and Real Estate by Libby Levinson

Congress Park

Congress Park is bordered by Colfax Avenue to the North, 6th Avenue to the South, Colorado Boulevard to the East, and York Street to the West.

Congress Park has blossomed into one of Denver’s most sought after urban neighborhoods. The neighborhood, originally known as Capital Heights, was known as a streetcar suburb before it was incorporated into Denver in 1889. The Congress Park neighborhood includes a sizable section of East Seventh Avenue Parkway, which runs Denver’s largest historic district, the 7th Avenue Historic District.

The Congress Park neighborhood is lined with beautiful victorians, Denver squares, and bungalows. It is the perfect neighborhood to raise a family, with close proximity to the Denver Botanic Gardens, the Congress Park Pool, and Cheesman Park.

The 12th Avenue neighborhood restaurants, including Shells and Sauce, Chef Zorba’s, Peter’s Chinese, and Downpours Coffee offer an unparalleled community atmosphere. The Congress Park neighborhood is also home to Sweet Cooie’s, the Umbrella Cafe, and Wildflowers.

The tree lined streets of Congress Park offer easy access to various other neighborhoods around Denver, including Cherry Creek, Cheesman, Whittier, Mayfair, and Five Points. Its close proximity to downtown juxtaposed with its vast array of homes and price ranges make Congress Park one of Denver’s most popular urban neighborhoods.
