A big draw with Congress Park real estate is the consistency of homes and the proximity to Cherry Creek North. Cherry Creek North is about 16 city blocks of shops, restaurants and boutiques. Most Denver neighborhoods have 1 or 2 blocks of shops but having this popular retail district nearby provides residents with single family homes and walk-ability to almost everything they need. There is an eclectic mix of dining opportunities – Greek, Japanese, Chinese, French, Italian, Vietnamese and American – particularly along East Colfax Avenue.
Residents are also close to the Town Center on 12th Ave. and Clayton, and will enjoy proximity to the new redeveloped “hospital district,” that will merge several city hospitals. Congress Park offers easy access to downtown Denver, the I-25 and I-70.
Congress Park features a number of recreational opportunities, including eight tennis courts, athletic fields, a children’s playground, picnic pavilion and a public outdoor swimming pool. The adjacent Denver Botanical Gardens is also a popular place for a scenic walk.
