ABOUT CENTRAL PARK, CO
In 1995 when the opening of Denver International Airport meant the closing of Stapleton International Airport, Denver had the unique opportunity to transform 7.5 square miles of runways, concourses and terminals into a beautiful new community. It is now a large neighborhood located 20 minutes east of downtown Denver along the southern edge of Interstate 70. Denver’s RTD Light Rail A-Line offers residents an easy commute to downtown Denver and Denver International Airport. Check out the RTD interactive map here. Download the RTD Map here.
