With ample outdoor space, endless dining and entertainment options, a golf course and even a Zoo, City Park is like its own little world. It’s no wonder this bustling area is popular for homebuyers.

At the heart of the neighborhood is its namesake. City Park is a sprawling, 330-acre urban park that includes Denver Zoo and the Denver Museum of Nature & Science, as well as two lakes (Ferril and Duck), a boathouse and dozens of running trails, picnic areas, playgrounds, fields, horseshoe pits and more.

City Park is also home to some of the most popular events in Denver. It’s the start and finish line for the Colfax Marathon, but it also has plenty of things going on all year long for those aren’t keen on the running scene.

One of the most popular is City Park Jazz, which offers 10 free concerts each summer. It’s a tradition that began more than 130 years ago when men and women in their Sunday best would listen to music at the City Park bandstand. City Park Jazz started again in 1986 and has grown to more than 80,000 guests annually.

The Colorado Black Arts Festival, which has been going on for 30 years, takes place in City Park in July and celebrates African-American contributions to art and culture.

While there’s never a shortage of things to do, living in City Park can be on the pricey side. According to Trulia, median sales price for homes in City Park is $515,500, up 15.8 percent from last year. Rents follow the typical standard in Denver; around $2,250 for all size properties.
