This city close neighborhood was built on high ground in the 1920’s and became home to many doctors who worked at the University of Colorado Hospital developed at that same time. Diverse architecture, parkways and its two neighborhood parks are popular year round.
Cranmer Park was named for Denver’s park manager George Cranmer who donated the land for Denver’s 1st city park. His landmark Mediterranean home enjoys spectacular views of the Rocky Mountains. The park boasts an inlay of Colorado’s highest mountains as well as a sundial. Used for kite flying school games and picnics, this park is a favorite. Robinson Park was donated by the Robinson family when it moved its brick yard from the corner of 3rd and Fairfax. Robinson Park has a playground and is a great sledding hill on snowy days.
Architecture is diverse blending tudors and classic two story’s to “pop tops” and newer scraped lots with large home built by builders or residents wishing today’s floor plans in a city close neighborhood.
