Congress Park Neighborhood– a hidden gem. Another perspective by Ryan Rose, Realtor at Keller Williams Realty Downtown, LLC.
Congress Park Neighborhood is often over looked but this Denver historic neighborhood has a lot to offer. Not only is it close to all the action in Downtown Denver and Colfax but it has all the neighborhood charm you expect from Denver. The Denver Botanic Gardens boarders this cozy neighborhood to the west. Historic 7th Avenue filled with super sized homes and mansions is to the south and the vibrant Colfax Avenue is to the North with the Bluebird Theater a short walk away. In the interior of the neighborhood there are 2 former trolley stop retail pockets on 12th street that offer such undiscovered delights like Sweet Cooies Ice Cream (an offset of Littleman ice cream with luxe vintage décor) and of course the heart of the neighborhood Congress park itself with 10 tennis courts, numerous playing fields and a public pool (in my opinion the best outdoor pool in Denver).
Brief history: (to show off to your friends) The Congress Park neighborhood was originally subdivided in 1887 & 1888 it incorporated into Denver on March 11th, 1889. It was known as the Capitol Heights Neighborhood until the 1970’s. In the mid 1800’s Congress Park to Cheesman Park to the west were used as cemeteries but as the city grew the cemetery was moved before the land was developed into parks and the botanic gardens for the expanding city of Denver.

"We worked with Karen Venier for a relatively short time for a good reason: our home sold at full price within hours of hitting the market! While it’s true that the Denver housing market is “hot,” credit for the speed and ease of our transaction belongs to Karen. She was great to work with, giving us perfect advice about readying our home for sale and then expertly guiding us from offer to close. Along the way, we came to appreciate Karen for her skillful blend of professionalism and personal touches – like dropping off our favorite beverages during a particularly stressful time in our move or shoveling our driveway in subzero temps after we’d left the state (way beyond the call of duty!). Now that we’ve relocated to Wisconsin, we keep saying that we wish Karen could be our buyer’s agent here. Since that’s not possible, we’ll shout her name loudly to whoever might be looking for a home in the Denver area.
Thanks for the great work, Karen!
