Location

Less than three miles southeast of downtown, Uptown is bordered by 20th Street to the north, Colfax Avenue to the south, York Street to the east, and Broadway to the west. Modern high-rise apartments, Queen Anne and Victorian homes, and swanky lofts are mixed among the tree-lined boulevards.

Attractions

Restaurant row is just one of many attractions that has people flocking to Uptown. After you’re done sampling the flavors from one of the local gastropubs or upscale restaurants, you can head over to the city’s largest green space -- City Park. Within the park, you’ll find the Denver Zoo, the Denver Museum of Nature & Science, and miles and miles of scenic biking and jogging paths.

If you are looking to catch a memorable sunset over the Rockies, Uptown’s City Park is maybe the best vantage point in the city. In fact, it offers stunning panoramic views of the terrain around Denver at any time of day.

There is always something special going on in Uptown. In the summer, the City Park Jazz concert series and the Colorado Black Arts Festival are both very popular with locals. During the holiday season, the Denver Zoo’s Zoo Lights event is a hit with children and adults.

Best Denver Neighborhoods for Families

As we get older, our values change. When we’re young and carefree, we may look for a home that’s close to bustling city centers, convenient public transportation, and exciting nightlife. Adding a spouse and children to your life will vastly change what you look for in a home.

There is no perfect way to define a “family-friendly neighborhood,” but there are a few factors that most of us can agree on: low crime, good schools, and plenty of other families around. Throw in some parks and some all-ages entertainment options and you have the makings of a family-friendly neighborhood.

Here are a few of the top Denver neighborhoods for families.

Stapleton

This neighborhood was planned and built with families and children in mind. In addition to great schools, you’ll also find more than 35 parks within the confines of Stapleton. There is no shortage of safe, open green space for kids to run around and play in.

If one of the hallmarks of a family-friendly neighborhood is a tight knit network of parents and children, then Stapleton is one of the family-friendliest areas you’ll find anywhere. On summer nights, roughly 500 local kids and adults will come out to enjoy free outdoor movies together.

Once the new light rail system between Stapleton and Denver is complete by 2016, this area will be an even more convenient location for moms and dads who have to commute into the city.
