Prospect Park | Central Platte Valley
Prospect Park, a fast growing downtown neighborhood, boasts an industrial-chic atmosphere. The site of a major railroad intersection, this area was strictly industrial; warehouses and loading docks were built to serve the train traffic, and the rail yard buzzed with activity. Today, however, the rail yard is closed and much of the original construction has been demolished. In its place, imaginative developers are creating striking new residential buildings, offering spacious lofts and apartments surrounding an Italian-style piazza. Nestled in close proximity to the downtown center and I-25, this visionary neighborhood offers a people-friendly ambiance within walking distance of food, shopping, and night life.
Fox Street forms Prospect Park’s eastern boundary, and 29th Avenue bounds the area to the south. The railroad tracks form the neighborhood’s northern and western boundaries. Tucked away in the shadow of Coor’s Field, Prospect Park is sheltered from much of downtown’s commotion. It’s central location, though, guarantees easy access to downtown attractions and mass transit. Lodo, a spicy and eclectic neighborhood with art galleries, cafes, and pubs, is within walking distance. The Colorado Rockies play baseball at Coor’s Field, and thrilling roller coasters can be found at Six Flags Elitch Gardens. The planned piazza at the heart of Prospect Park will offer convenient access to bistros, coffee houses, and shops. In addition to fulfilling daily needs, the piazza will instill a sense of community spirit and offer a central meeting place for residents. Interstate 25 and Union Station (the Amtrak and light-rail hub) are just minutes away, making travel easier and more convenient. While Prospect Park offers an oasis in the midst of the downtown hubub, the fun and action of the city center are just minutes away.
