DU / UNIVERSITY PARK
ABOUT DU / UNIVERSITY PARK
These fine neighborhoods are located 15 minutes south of downtown, between Interstate 25 to the east and South Colorado Boulevard to the west. Much of this area borders DU (University of Denver) and was incorporated in 1886 as the town of South Denver. The neighborhood is mostly single-family homes with manicured lawns that are desirable for all kinds of residents. It provides a college town feel with eclectic eatiers, local coffee shops, dive bars, and breweries that make it easy to have fun and relax.
The homes in University Park are almost exclusively single-family ranches, but newly constructed modern eclectic homes are on the rise. The aesthetically pleasing streets are wide and lined with trees, perfect for shady summer walks with kids & dogs. Architecture in this area remains a uniquely charming mix and this beautiful neighborhood offers a wonderful environment with easy access to the best of Denver.
The Highline Canal Trail flows through University Hills, offering residents access to 70+ miles of walking and biking trails through the Denver region. Mamie D. Eisenhower Park is located on the canal as well, and has a pool, playground, athletic fields, picnic areas and a recreation center. University Hills residents also have access to two RTD stations along the E, F and R lines. Check out the RTD interactive map here. Download the RTD Map here.
