Harvey Park South
Welcome to Harvey Park South
In southwest Denver, between the streets of South Sheridan Boulevard, West Yale Avenue, South Federal Boulevard and 285, lies the unassuming neighborhood of Harvey Park South. Like its sister neighborhood to the north, this area was developed in the 1950s in reaction to Denver’s growing population. Its location makes it a great choice for those looking to stay in Denver, but have easy access to the mountains.
Unlike Harvey Park, the homes here are less typical mid-century moderns, and more brick cottages and tidy ranches. As the area has grown in popularity, many of these older homes have been remodeled, combining modern conveniences with the original charm and character. Most lots are generously sized and well maintained, giving the community a warm and inviting feeling. Colorado Heights University lies on 74 acres along the eastern edge, and its majestic Romanesque Administration Building provides a gorgeous landmark for the neighborhood—especially since the university sits on the highest area in Denver.
Outside of university grounds, there are few shared green spaces to be found in the neighborhood proper, although Bear Creek Park is just on the other side of 285, and Harvey Park is not too far north. Plus, 285 provides a quick escape to Morrison, Conifer, and into the central mountains beyond. Retail is limited to the southwest corner of the neighborhood, but the shops and restaurants of River Point at Sheridan and Englewood City Center are a short drive away.
