Lincoln Park is a neighborhood in Denver, CO that is just on the edge of downtown. Its boundaries are 22nd Ave, 29th St, Pearl St, and Interstate 25. There are two public parks in this area: Deann Park and Skyline Park.
This neighborhood has some really beautiful turn-of-the-century Victorian homes that have been meticulously cared for as well as other antiques, craftsman-style bungalows, and contemporary condos and lofts. Lincoln Park offers a unique type of living that not many neighborhoods in Denver can provide – having main areas like Colfax Ave., LoDo (lower downtown), Cherry Creek, etc within walking distance while staying far enough out to still have a local community feeling to it. Overall, Lincoln is a quiet residential area with a vibrant community.
Lincoln Park does not have a commercial area, although it is in close proximity to Colfax Ave., LoDo (lower downtown), Cherry Creek, and the 16th St. Mall which are all considered to be Denver’s shopping districts with plenty of specialty shops, boutiques, restaurants, bars/lounges, etc. to choose from in those areas.
Lincoln Park is an urban neighborhood that is also home to great public schools including East High School and George Washington H High School as well as small businesses like breweries and bakeries along with some of the city’s best local artists stores and galleries.
It has two public parks within its boundaries: Deann Park Skyline Park as well as a great community garden called the Denver Urban Gardens in Deann Park.
The median home value is $560,000 according to Zillow and the median rental price per month is $2,750. This neighborhood has experienced some development over the last several years as new condos/lofts have been built along with older historic homes being renovated to their original state that had fallen into disrepair.
Lincoln Park is one of Denver’s most desirable areas due in part to its close proximity to downtown and the fact that it is within walking distance to many attractions such as the 16th Street Mall, Coors Field, Union Station, etc.
This neighborhood has fantastic views from both Deann and Skyline Parks which are both located on hills overlooking downtown Denver, I-25, and the mountains. In addition, there are fantastic restaurants along with some great local breweries/brewpubs that are incredibly popular for their own small community feel (for example Black Shirt Brewing Company ).
Finally, there is an eclectic mix of people in this area including artists, musicians, families with children & pets living next door to young professionals just starting out or those that are looking to get away from the “scene” of downtown. Therefore, I would say this neighborhood is very desirable and continues to grow in popularity on a daily basis.
There is not much crime that occurs in Lincoln Park other than some noise complaints due to people loitering at night or partying too late (which is typical for any living area).
In general, it has great public schools which have been ranked high as well as having fantastic access to many parts of Denver and being close enough to Cherry Creek if you want to go shopping and one of the city’s best farmers markets on Saturdays during the summer/fall months.
