Overlooking Downtown Denver from its perch above the city, Jefferson Park is just across the highway from Elitch Gardens, the Denver Aquarium, REI’s famous flagship store, and the Pepsi Center. It is home to families and young professionals, renters, and homeowners.
The neighborhood has a spectacular view of the city. The neighborhood’s namesake park is a popular spot for firework-watching on the 4th of July! Part of the Lower Highlands area, Jefferson Park is close to a plethora of incredible places to eat and drink. The proximity to downtown, public transportation, and shopping and dining at Highland Square all make living in this neighborhood highly desirable. Take the light rail or walk to the Cherry Creek or Platte River trails for an enjoyable commute to work or around town. Places to eat, shop, drink, or just lay low are endless, and the bike paths and parks make being outdoors an inviting blend of nature with city living.
Jefferson Park has been growing and changing since its beginning in the late 1800s. This rich history is carried in the neighborhood’s architecture, sporting a variety of architectural styles and designs from the 1890s, 1920s, 40s, 50s, and on! Townhomes, condos, and renovations mean there is style for everyone in this heart-of-Denver neighborhood.
This episode I head to the North Downtown Denver neighborhood of Jefferson Park. This neighborhood is not only home to the Denver Broncos stadium, but some incredible local businesses. We check out a menswear boutique that sells only products made in the USA at Sully & Co and some fantastic modern metropolitan Italian cuisine at Sarto's.
