Welcome to Gateway
On the eastern plains of the city’s edge, close to the airport and the convenience of I-70, is the Denver neighborhood of Gateway. Bordered by Chambers Road to the west, 56th Avenue to the North, Tower Road to the east and 40th Avenue to the south, the area is still largely undeveloped—despite having Peña Boulevard, the main artery to Denver International Airport, running through its middle. There are small pockets of residential development here, though it’s nothing compared to the more established and adjoining neighborhoods of Montbello and Green Valley Ranch. The homes that are here are mainly ranches and two-stories, all built since the airport brought growth to the area 20 years ago. They are newer, affordable homes on tidy lots, offering a sense of community in the wide open prairie land of the neighborhood’s setting. Parkfield Lake Park and Montbello Rec Center provide recreational opportunities to residents, and there are a handful of chain restaurants and fast food places on the western and southern borders. Due to its proximity to the airport, there are a growing number of hotels and business parks in the area. With the addition of the light rail to the airport and other related expansions, it’s likely that even more hotels and businesses will set up shop here and bring with them more dining and shopping options for those who call Gateway home.
