Congress Park

   

What began as a streetcar suburb in the early 1900’s is now one of Denver’s most popular urban neighborhoods.

Both Detroit Street and Seventh Avenue Parkway display spectacular  dream homes, while the intersections of 12th Avenue and Madison Street  and 12th Avenue and Elizabeth Street bask in their proximity to retail  districts.Congress Park, a 17-block-by-nine block area just east of  downtown, often lures families with school-age children with its large  Denver Squares, Victorians and bungalows.

Shells and Sauce, Chef Zorba’s Greek Restaurant and Peter’s Chinese  snuggle in at Elizabeth while Wildflower’s gifts, The Lamb Yarn Shop,  Pudge Bros. Pizza, Dominoe’s Pizza, Berenices salon, and Under the  Umbrella Cafe prosper at Madison. Congress Park itself offers swimming,  tennis, baseball and soccer fields.
