Was in Denver a few weeks back checking out the area. Love Cap Hill and Uptown areas but realize rent is too much. Just looking for some opinions on City Park, Park Hill, and Cheeseman Park neighborhoods. Rent seems more reasonable in these areas. Were looking for a 1 or 2 bdrm (preferable 2) under $950. Ive found a good bit in that price range on craigslist, but have no idea if there are some areas to avoid. We want some place safe (female walking around at night), not near a shelter or mental health clinic. Id like something walkable to public transportation. Would also love to walk to coffee, bars, restaurants, and be near a park. We want to still feel like we live in the city. Were trying to avoid living in a huge apartment complex. I plan on coming out again to actually look at places, but will not have much time and dont want to waste my time checking out apartments in crappy areas. Does such a place exist or are my hopes to high? I would really appreciate any feedback on these areas. Thanks!

City park west is a little more gritty, but rent is more reasonable and you you be able to find what you are looking for pretty easily there. Cheeseman is a little expensive and parts of Park hill do not have the best reputation

City Park South (or what some call "The Bluebird District") is a fun area which is close to a huge park (City Park) and lot's of fun nightlife. Plus they are opening up a dog park on Colfax and York this weekend, which is great if you have a dog. I don't know what rent is like in this section of the City Park area, but if it's reasonable, I say go for it.

Park Hill is a great area. We used to live there and loved it. Very walkable and diverse, and near the zoo, Museum of Nature and Science, City Park, downtown and the 17th Ave. shopping district. It has many small bungalows that you may be able to rent for under $1000. The further north (and east) you go in Park Hill the sketchier it becomes (and the lower the rents), but even then the blocks are hit or miss. You'll have to come out and meet the neighbors and check any potential rental out for yourself. Lots of luck!

I live in the Hale which is on the East side of Colorado Blvd and I have lived in the Capitol Hill, City Park & Cheesman Park areas. All of them are great and I would say go for it - just try not to be too close to Colfax. On named streets, addresses lower than 1300 and higher than 1700 should be fine.

Ignore the above post, Colfax is fantastic, in fact everything you are going to want to do from eating out to seeing a show is going to be on Colfax.
