Park Hill Professional Guide
Detailed Trail Description from our Guidebook
"In the late 1800s Denver’s downtown was a place of saloons, brothels, and crowded, filthy streets. Those who could afford it seemed always on the lookout for the next best neighborhood that put distance between them and downtown.
Park Hill is indeed one of Denver’s most desirable places to live in the city, thanks to its proximity just east of City Park and some of Denver’s most popular attractions, the Denver Zoo and the Denver Museum of Nature and Science. Wide tree-lined streets with big to grand homes fill the neighborhood that is also anchored by some small business districts that make it that much more pedestrian friendly. It’s also home to a few large and distinctive churches that are another aspect of the strong community bonds here. Stroll among the houses, past families playing in the park, and stop in and have a bite to eat and a cup of coffee as you get to know Park Hill."
