Remember driving by those signs that said, “If you lived here you’d already be home now?”
Well, if you call Central Park home, you’d be close to everything. Good friends. Family. Entertainment. Great restaurants. A feeling of community, and close to just about everything in Denver proper.
In Central Park, a great deal of this community’s appeal is its central location, its proximity to terrific neighborhood amenities, as well as its hop-skip-and-jump distance to local city attractions and services.
For example, if you’re living in North End neighborhood, you’re only one mile from the Rocky Mountain Arsenal National Wildlife Refuge and Dick’s Sporting Goods Park, and eight miles from the Denver Zoo.
If you live in Eastbridge neighborhood, you are a short walk from the Eastbridge Town Center, where you can enjoy great restaurants, get your nails done and do a little shopping. If you’re up for a great game of golf, you’re only three miles from the City Park Golf Course. The Denver Museum of Nature and Science if you are up for learning.
In Central Park’s first neighborhood, East 29th Avenue neighborhood, you can enjoy a healthy breakfast at Etai’s Bakery Café before heading to Coors Field, which is only 5.6 miles from the epicenter of Central Park.
Or, if you’d prefer a day of high culture and history, enjoy your croissant before dropping by the Blair-Caldwell African American Research Library in Five Points at 2401 Welton Street in Five Points, a scant 15-minute jaunt by car.
No car? Or prefer an eco-friendlier mode of travel? Central Park is home to the Regional Transportation District’s (RTD) commuter rail and bus station, also known as “the University of Colorado A-Line.” The station, located at 8175 E. Smith Road, is the third eastbound station from Union Station in Downtown Denver, and the fourth westbound from Denver International Airport – and all parts in-between!
So, if your bags are packed and you’d like to avoid airport parking or if you’d rather enjoy the sights, sounds and culinary smorgasbord of Denver’s Union Station, the University of Colorado A-Line is your answer.
And let’s not forget the all-important opportunities for retail therapy.
Whether you live north or south of Interstate 70, a lot of shopping awaits at The Shops at Northfield, The Shops at Beeler Park, Eastbridge and the East 29th Avenue Town Centers. All less than five miles apart, and less than 15 minutes from any neighborhood in Central Park.
But most importantly, the community of Central Park, in its entirety, is less than 10 miles from almost any of Denver’s cultural and civic attractions. Locally, a brisk walk or leisurely stroll can take you any of the parks where families gather, or one of the seven pools where residents and children splash their way through summer.
Whatever your need, pleasure or craving, you won’t have to travel far in Central Park. Everything is right here. Where it’s already good to be home.
