Architectural variety gives Congress Park an air of eclectic charm. You can find grand old late-1800’s mansions, charming Bungalows and the occasional more modern new-construction home. The neighborhood features easy access to Cherry Creek and downtown, and is within walking distance of many small-scattered retail areas with cozy shops and eateries. One of the most well known landmarks of the area is the Denver Botanic Gardens–open year around it regularity hosts’ special events, concerts and art shows, all open to the public.
The Congress Park neighborhood is loosely bounded on the west by Cheesman Park (or Josephine Street), Colfax Avenue on the north, Colorado Boulevard to the east and on the south by Sixth Avenue. Congress Park itself contains eight tennis courts, several athletic fields, a children’s playground, a picnic pavilion, and one of Denver’s public outdoor swimming pools. Congress Park and it’s sister, Cheesman Park are two of the grand old parks of Denver and are wonderful places to spend warm summer afternoons with family and friends.
Congress Park has long been one of Denver’s most popular neighborhoods. If you are looking for beautiful vintage homes on tree lined streets in the heart of Denver then this is the place to be.
