Just 15 minutes southwest of downtown Denver, the neighborhood of Harvey Park is experiencing renewed interest in its affordable and unique homes. With solid brick ranch and authentic mid-century modern home styles, Harvey Park has attracted diverse people from across the country while retaining many of the original homeowners from more than 50 years ago.
The neighborhood gets its name from the large park and lake in the center of the community, which includes a K-8 school, Denver Recreation Center, outdoor swimming pool and sport fields. Mature trees shade the expansive green areas, filling with birthday parties, barbecues and quinceañeras on warm evenings and weekends. The Sanderson Gulch and Bear Creek trails are ideal for a stroll, and they connect Harvey Park to the South Platte Trail leading straight to downtown Denver.
The restaurants that ring the Harvey Park, along with the city’s best strip of ethnic dining to the northeast, make for interesting places to meet neighbors. Since the 1950s, Harvey Park has provided a home for people seeking a slice of the suburbs close to the city. The tradition of the past along with the energy of new residents will continue to make Harvey Park a great place to live.
