Neighborhood Spotlight | Washington Park
The beautiful residential area around Washington Park, known by locals as “Wash Park”, is situated on 161 acres just outside of Denver’s bustling downtown scene. The area was built and designed by architect Reinhard Schuetze with later input from famous Titanic survivor, “The Unsinkable Mrs. Molly Brown”, and is picturesque with its cozy small town store fronts and lush landscaping.
Wash Park is defined by Virginia Street to the North, Downing Street to the West, Louisiana to South and Franklin to the East. The area is an outdoor enthusiast’s dream. With its two lakes, two formal flower gardens, and numerous tree-lined walking paths, you won’t see a pretty day without noticing people enjoying nature’s amenities! Smith Lake takes center stage in this historic neighborhood with opportunities for boating and fishing. Tennis courts, formal gardens and extensive cycling trails are also a key to this area’s great use of the outdoors!
Dining and Shopping Options in and around Wash Park
Wash Park not only has outdoor activities but has great dining options and is rich with Denver history. Its proximity to South Pearl Street, which was the site of Denver’s first trolly car route and is now a hot spot for some of Denver’s best local dinning, specialty shops and boutiques, provides even more amenities for lucky residents of Wash Park.
In addition, the historic “Old Gaylord Street,” which is one of the oldest retail and dining areas in the city, it not far away. This area features such restaurants as Reivers Bar and Grill which has been serving the areas great “pub grub” and craft brews for over three decades. You can also enjoy Homegrown Tap & Dough for house-made specialty pasta and hand-tossed, wood-fired pizzas. They even pay homage to Colorado’s Skiers paradise where you enjoy your meal in vintage ski lifts and gondolas. If you are in a fancier mood you can get a reservation at the Restaurant Olivia serving the finest in homemade pasta! Or if you just have a sweet tooth try the very popular Bonnie Brae Ice Cream, where all the cream is made in-store!

Wash Park Real Estate
Outside of the great amenities Wash Park has to offer, people want to live here because of the prime location, low crime rate, and the great school system. There are homes in the area dating back to the 1800’s, but that hasn’t stopped the community from expanding and adding new homes in recent years.
Right now, as always, Wash Park has very limited real estate inventory. The cheapest home for sale is $850,000 and the most expensive is $4,495,000. With condos you can get in at a much lower price with the lowest at $280,000 and the highest at $480,000 at the time of this writing.
Wash Park will always be a popular Denver area. With unlimited outdoor activities, beautiful lakes and green space, proximity to Cherry Creek and downtown, Wash Park certainly ranks at the top of Denver’s places to be and places to be seen list.
