Park Hill South
Welcome to Park Hill South
Home to the 42nd Governor of Colorado, John Hickenlooper, and his family, Park Hill is listed by the American Planning Association as one of the “10 Great Neighborhoods in America for 2008.” One of Denver’s oldest and most cherished neighborhoods, Park Hill South sits between 23rd Avenue, Quebec, Colfax, and Colorado Boulevard.
American Elms line wide parkways where joggers, cyclists, and mothers pushing strollers enjoy their shade. Stately mansions, quintessential Denver Squares, adorable bungalows, and post-World War II Cape Cods rest on some of the largest lots in the city. Originally established in 1900 by settlers from many nations, Park Hill maintains much of its diversity with its proximity to the heart of the city and surrounding neighborhoods.
As the most suburban of Denver’s urban neighborhoods—just a short drive on 17th Avenue Parkway to Downtown Denver—it’s no wonder homebuyers flock here. Head west on 23rd Avenue, and you’ll discover a sprinkling of some of Denver’s best restaurants, gourmet foods, and specialty shops. A bike ride away is the Denver Museum of Nature and Science, the Zoo, and City Park.
If one word could capture the spirit of this neighborhood, it’s pride. Whether it’s because of the picturesque setting, the tight-knit community or just the convenient location, you’d be hard-pressed to find a resident of Park Hill who isn’t proud of where they live.
