Living in Washington Park
The streets of Wash Park are dotted with front porches. The neighborhood combines a sense of modern living and tradition.
You can walk from almost any home to one of half a dozen local coffee shops. One of these coffee shops, Wash Perk rests just west of Washington Park.
Wash Perk is one of the most sustainable businesses in Denver and it exemplifies the nature of the neighborhood. Two neighbors founded the coffee shop almost 10 years ago while continue to work as a professor and an oncology nurse. They shared a love for their community – and coffee – and so one day they decided to join the two into what has become a hub for the neighborhood.
Wash Perk, like Wash Park, is a place where people support each other. It’s a place where local business endeavors are not only supported, but sought out. It’s a place where you’re not just another number, but you’re an essential element to the community.
Beyond coffee shops, you can also walk from any home in the neighborhood to the local elementary school or to local restaurants. You can walk to your doctor or to your dentist, to your insurance agent, to your grocery store or to your dog groomer.
In the center of the neighborhood is Washington Park, a city park that extends for 165 acres. It includes two ponds (home to a large community of Canada Geese), tennis courts, a community pavilion, and fields where people converge on the weekends to play volleyball and picnic.
Washington Park is truly the most welcoming and nourishing neighborhood in Denver.
