Washington Park Homes for Sale
Wash Park earns its name from the 161-acre park that serves the neighborhood residents and their dogs. Although all of Denver is dog-friendly, Wash Park earns the title of one of the most dog-friendly neighborhoods. As you stroll through the park on a Saturday, you’ll find everyone walking with at least one dog and usually kids in tow, too.

Alameda Avenue, a street bordering the Wash Park neighborhood, dishes up a host of restaurants for the nearby residents.

The crown jewel of Wash Park, however, is the namesake park. It offers residents an abundance of green space, lakes, gardens, trails and even a recreation center and playground. Neighborhood residents frequent the park to enjoy Colorado’s 300 days of sunshine; but, the park also draws Denverites from around the city.
