South of Downtown
Washington Park

Washington Park or Wash Park
Washington Park is the largest park in this district and is over 100 years old. It hosts over 250 picnic permits per year and has many unique features such as a 2.6-mile jogging path, the busiest recreation center in Denver and 2 of the most flamboyant flower gardens in Denver. It has several soccer fields, 2 playgrounds (1 handicap accessible), 1 basketball and roller blade court, 1 horseshoe court, 10 tennis courts and a lawn bowling green and 2 lakes.

Beautiful, wide-open spaces and two lakes dominate the landscape, and an indoor pool and gym facilities at recently renovated rec center are just some of the recreational opportunities available. Tennis courts (on both sides of the south lake), a massive playground and jogging paths provide additional diversions. It's a fantasyland for in-line skaters and bicyclists as well as gardening enthusiasts - the park's colorful flower beds along Downing Street are some of Wash Park's best summer features.

This is a terrific place to take in a free concert during the summer (the Colorado Symphony plays here annually in June), and to sneak a peek at the Denver Country Club's annual fireworks display in July. The restored boathouse pavilion is available to rent for special occasions. The after-work population swells tremendously during good weather; come earlier if possible to avoided being crowded out.

Plenty of shops plus restaurants offering nearly every type of cuisine are nearby: to the east along Old South Gaylord Street, and to the west on South Pearl Street.

Washington Park (aka Wash Park) has become a premier neighborhood in the greater Denver metropolitan area, and is undergoing significant revitalization and architectural renewal. Construction of homes began in mid 1880's and continued till late 1920's. A few homes were added during the 1930 and 1940's. The revitalization occurred toward the end of 1990's.  Single Family Residences generally range from approximately 500sq/ft to 2000 sq/ft. Basements do exist in these older homes and through improvements and updating have increased the finished sq/ft to 4000 in some cases . Many of the homes merely have only crawl spaces . Multi-family housing "duplexes" are quite common in the area.
