Bear Valley

Welcome to Bear Valley

Seven miles southwest of downtown Denver—lying roughly between Wadsworth, Yale, Sheridan and Hampden—is the neighborhood of Bear Valley. In the late 1800s, gold and silver fueled Denver’s rapid growth and made many new residents quite wealthy. Many of them chose to build summer homes in the southwest suburbs, where they could escape the city, and take advantage of more open land and sweeping views. One of those summer homes, which still stands in Bear Valley, belonged to the “Unsinkable” Molly Brown herself.

The Avoca Lodge, Brown’s summer home, today serves as an events center and hosts weddings, historical tours, and even murder mystery nights. And while a handful of these turn-of-the-century Victorians still exist in Bear Valley, the area is largely dominated by ranches, split-levels, townhomes, condos and apartment buildings built during the ‘60s and ‘70s. Many homes offer large, manicured lots along quiet streets that belie the neighborhood’s proximity to the convenience of the major thoroughfares of Wadsworth, Sheridan and Hampden.

A few small strip malls can be found along the borders of Bear Valley, offering limited retail and largely fast food and fast-casual dining, but nearby Bear Valley Shopping Center and River Point at Sheridan provide more shopping, restaurant and entertainment options. Bear Creek and the accompanying trail run along the southern edge of the neighborhood and Bear Creek Greenbelt lies just west of the area, across Wadsworth. These, coupled with the five golf courses that can be found within just a couple of miles, offer plenty of recreational opportunities to the residents of Bear Valley.
