Fueled by recent commercial expansion, the Berkeley Denver neighborhood is rumored as the city's next trendy shopping district. From Simple Food vegetarian grocery to Bikrams Highland Yoga and Tenn Street Books, Tennyson Street may look like Main Street in a small town but it has something for every health-food-enthusiast, Pilates' junky and bibliophile.
Mixed in with these newer shops are authentic Mexican restaurants and historical-hip venues like The Oriental Theatre. Lowell Boulevard also has its share of sweet spots including the authentic Café Brazil, the centrally located Safeway grocery store and the ever-present Starbucks. In addition, the neighborhood boasts the Berkeley Lake Park and the Rocky Mountain Lake Park that cumulatively have two large lakes, basketball courts, a bike/pedestrian path, an indoor and outdoor pool, soccer and softball fields, a playground, library, football field and off-leash dog park. Also, a short trip west on 44th Avenue leads almost directly to the historical Lakeside amusement park, while Sheridan, Federal and Lowell are all major thoroughfares connecting to I-70.
