Welcome to Fort Logan
Nestled between Lakewood to the west and both Sheridan and Englewood to the east and 10 miles southwest of downtown, is the Denver neighborhood of Fort Logan. Suburban in feeling, the area gets its name from the military installation that was established here in October 1887 and lasted until 1946—which, in turn, was named after Union General John A. Logan, commander of US volunteer forces during the Civil War. Since the fort has closed, the site has been used as a mental health center and 75 acres of the land was set aside and is used for the Fort Logan National Cemetery.
The expansive neighborhood includes several parks, a small lake, and the prestigious Pinehurst Country Club, a private 27-hole golf course that also features indoor and outdoor tennis courts, an Olympic-sized pool, and a spacious clubhouse. Houses range from affordable condos to million-dollar estates bordering on the golf course, and everything in between. Mid-century brick ranches, unique modern designs from the ‘70s & ‘80s, and latter day custom builds—all on generous lots—can be found here.
The sub-neighborhood of Bow Mar Heights takes up the southeast section of Fort Logan, and borders the similarly named Bow Mar. Bow Mar Heights offers many homes built from the 1970s to 1990s on manicured lawns or xeriscaped patios, twisting along wide streets and quiet cul-de-sacs. Hampden Avenue, on the northern edge of Fort Logan, gives residents easy access to the mountains or to the shops and restaurants of River Point at Sheridan or CityCenter Englewood.
