Situated in the area known as East Denver, the Park Hill neighborhood has a charming personality with a rich history. One of the most diverse communities in the Mile High City, Park Hill is separated into three administrative neighborhoods known as South Park Hill, North Park Hill and Northeast Park Hill. The neighborhood is only about 10 minutes from both downtown and Cherry Creek, and most residents work and play nearby.
Park Hill is mostly a residential community with shopping centers and restaurants sprinkled throughout. For recreation, most locals head to neighboring City Park with its golf courses, park sports leagues and attractions such as the Denver Museum of Nature and Science and the Denver Zoo.
Once known as ‘the finest square mile of real estate west of the Mississippi,’ Park Hill contains some of Denver’s most famous architecture. Ranging from Mission and Dutch Colonial style homes, and from Mediterranean to Victorian mansions, Park Hill real estate remains some of the most sought-after in the city. The magnificent old mansions and turn-of-the-century homes mix with newer houses along 17th Avenue Parkway and Montview Boulevard. Residents here rave about how new developments haven’t changed the old feeling of the neighborhood.
Park Hill made a name for itself with the professional class that moved into the area during the 1950s. While many established doctors, lawyers and business executives still call Park Hill home, good schools have attracted a lot of young families as well.
