There is nothing quite as important to a thriving community than its variety of local businesses. They bring a unique flavor to the place, and create opportunities for people to come together and support a common good. Central Park Denver is home to many locally owned, small businesses– with more opening all the time as new neighborhoods take shape.
The Shops at Beeler Park is the latest retail area to be completed, located on the northwest corner of 56th Avenue and Central Park Boulevard. The Shops at Beeler Park are a collection of locally owned Central Park small businesses. Several of which are owned and operated by Central Park residents who live a stone’s throw from their business and have elected to make their home in the community that supports their livelihood— allowing them to establish deep roots and personal connections with the neighbors and friends their businesses serve.
A few such businesses include…
