My wife and I are considering Park Hill when we relocate our family to Denver. The architecture and location appeal greatly to us. Anyway, I wanted to see what everyone's opinion was of the area and any experiences, be them positive or negative, that people have had. Thanks in advance...

Park Hill is a nice area, which, as you probably know, is close to the Zoo and Museum of Nature and Science, not to mention City Park and downtown Denver. No place is completely immune to crime, but Park Hill is a solid community with neighbors who know each other. My brother is raising his family there and they are very happy.

I've never lived there, but it's considered very nice. I would try to choose the portion of Park Hill either directly east or southeast of the park. As you go further north, the neighborhood is not quite as well-kept.

Well, you can try getting some information from the Greater Park Hill Community (GPHC). If you're in town, you can try going to one of their meetings -- virtually all the neighborhoods in Denver have a similar organization and it's a good way to find out the issues going on in neighborhoods.

Since I don't live in Park Hill, I can only point you to links on the Internet:

Beautiful, old neighborhood, close to downtown (if you'll be working that way)_ also not a bad commute to Broomfield/Interlocken area. I really like the architecture and the lots are bigger than other core urban areas of Denver. That said, it is older homes for the most party so aside from the charm, you do get smaller closets, closer neighbors and it is the city and crime is a bit higher. As long as you stay away from the far northern part of park hill and very close to Colfax, you are fine. Just use 17th Avenue Parkway as a place to start, and look north of that.

Well, I will just offer that yes, many/most of the homes are older, but a great many of them have been improved and updated so that you might not necessarily be looking at teeny-tiny closets, kitchens etc.
