Denver Neighborhoods – Jefferson Park
Jefferson Park was created during the early 20th century on the site of a disused landfill. It was names after Thomas Jefferson in order to compete with Washington Park, which had recently been named. Jefferson Park, and the surrounding neighborhood of the same name, overlook downtown Denver from its situation in the area known as Northwest Denver. Stationed on a bluff above the city, the park has excellent view over the city, particularly the Central Platte Valley.
Excellent transport links connect Jefferson Park to the downtown area and the rest of the city. With downtown Denver and Highlands Square within easy reach, there are plenty of nearby opportunities for entertainment, dining and shopping!
The main commercial area within Jefferson Park neighborhood is Federal Blvd, which offers a good selection of stores and restaurants. A diverse range of architectural styles can be found in Jefferson Park, due to the gradual way in which the neighborhood has been built up.
