Positioned between I-25, Yale, Colorado and University, Observatory Park enjoys all the convenience of Denver University’s college campus, while keeping the storybook setting of an upscale Denver neighborhood. Mansions with attached carriage houses rest on wide streets and the mature-tree-lined Observatory Park, named for the Romanesque Chamberlin Observatory, is the perfect spot for rugby games, basketball players, tennis gurus, walkers, runners and family picnickers.

Observatory Park houses the University of Denver. Students and young families are drawn to the area’s fantastic shopping, eating and entertainment. Along Colorado Boulevard neighbors have access to movie theaters, organic markets, restaurants, and sportswear outlets. Within walking distance along University, residents can grab a quick meal at multiple restaurants or relax with a weekend breakfast. There is also easy access to the architecturally rich University of Denver campus if you’re in the mood for a quiet stroll or taking in a performance at the Newman Center.


Situated just south of I-25, residents of Observatory Park enjoy easy access to the city, which is adds to the neighborhood’s appeal. The area also has access to two Light Rail stations. Many homes have been torn down and replaced with much bigger dwellings that accommodate modern living in an eclectic mansion style, and on just about every block in the area there is the sound of saws and hammers as Observatory Park receives a huge facelift from homeowners looking to upgrade and expand. Real estate professionals agree that Observatory Park has historically done very well in terms of value, and has become the perfect blend of prestige and quaintness.
Another highlight of this terrific neighborhood is the Chamberlin Observatory, which is located off Evans Avenue in Observatory Park. The space opened 1894 and remains a great place for a family outing or a date night.
