Congress Park

About this Neighborhood

Congress Park is the ideal area for relaxed city living. Its laid-back pace makes it perfect for everyone—even four-legged friends will feel right at home. That said, it’s also incredibly close to the action of urban Denver, as you’re no more than 6 minutes from anything you need. The Carla Madison Recreation Center located on Colfax Avenue is a new state-of-the-art recreation center that has 2 pools, a weight area, a cardio area, and much more! Congress Park is just north of vibrant Colfax Ave. while a quick jaunt south lands you in classy Cherry Creek.

Congress Park is sprinkled with charming brick bungalows and a style that’s distinctively mid-century. Punctuated by unique micro-neighborhoods, the Denver Botanic Gardens, and Congress Park itself, this area is defined by casual dining and hidden treasures by the block.
