The neighborhood of Berkeley lies in the center of Denver, in the area known as Northwest Denver. Berkeley Park has seen some rapid development in recent years, with many new businesses opening up in the area, and an influx of new residences drawn in by the beauty of the park and the charm of the neighborhood. The area is home to a good selection of restaurants, spas, and boutique stores, many of which are found along Tennyson Avenue.

There is a particular high concentration of art galleries in the Berkeley area. This is a very artistic community and there always seems to be something going on, whether it is an evening of live music or a night of experimental theater. Tennyson Street is the center of the Berkeley community, and it has given its name to the Tennyson Street Cultural Association, which is responsible for many interesting events in the neighborhood. The association organizes the First Friday Art Walk and runs the Oriental Theater, which hosts comedy, music, and movies. Many of the homes in the Berkeley area are in the style locally known as the Denver Square, although there are a range of different buildings from lofts to townhouses to family homes.
