Conveniently located just 15 minutes from downtown Denver, the Observatory Park neighborhood has a small-town charm with the advantages of a big city. Located close to the light rail station and with direct access to I-25, Observatory Park is a serene neighborhood with tall shade trees and a mixture of modern and traditional architectural styles. Outside Observatory Park is the University of Denver. Steeped in history and tradition, originally Denver University was founded as the Colorado Seminary in 1864. It became the University of Denver in 1890 when the Seminary added the name and became a degree-granting institution.
The homes in Observatory Park have recently gone through a significant face-lift, and values are consistently above $2 million.
