Welcome to Kennedy
Just north of I-225, the Kennedy neighborhood is named for the John F. Kennedy Park and Kennedy Golf Course which make up the majority of the area’s footprint. After Denver and Aurora were established in search of gold in the 1850s, the Kennedy area situated between them became a hub for farming and orchards. It maintains those roots today with parks and green space. Locals enjoy Cherry Creek State Park, a massive state park features a reservoir with swim beach, campgrounds, boating dock, yacht club, playground and miles of trails. Also nearby is the well-maintained Hampden Heights Park which boasts open grassy areas for people or dogs to run and play. It also has ball fields, a scenic trail, picnic benches and a playground. Wide streets and quiet subdivisions typical of a suburban community, with nearby entertainment ranging from old school taverns to upscale modern fusion restaurants are found here. There is a great mix of both chain stores and independent boutiques, so shopping is a breeze. Easy access to I-225, light rail and bus systems make transportation to downtown or the nearby Denver Tech center simple—this an ideal suburb for commuters traveling in either direction!
