Kentwood Community of the Month: Berkeley

Stretching from 38th Avenue to I-70, and Sheridan to Federal, is the Berkeley neighborhood. While Berkeley is an older neighborhood, its character has gone through some changes in recent years. This can be attributed to the redevelopment of what used to be Elitch Gardens. Since then, there has been an influx of young professionals and new families into the area.

Anchored by Tennyson Street, which is quickly becoming a commercial and cultural center of Northwest Denver, Berkeley is one of Denver’s best kept secrets. The street is host to a health food store, yoga studio, used book store and more! With restaurants like Hops and Pie, Parisi, Cafe Brasil and Black & Larder, you are bound to find a flavor you enjoy.

More residential than LoHi but with a similar allure of trendy boutiques and concept eateries, this area is without a doubt one of Denver’s up and coming shopping haven. Not to mention that the average price of a home is significantly lower than in the Highlands just across 38th.

Another wonderful feature of this neighborhood is its walk-ability. Across 38th you have a 24-Hour-Fitness, Starbucks, Sprouts and Highland Wine & Liquor. Berkeley Park, located on 46th and Tennyson, is no more than a ten minute walk from the town center. This park boasts tennis and basketball courts, soccer and softball fields, bike and pedestrian walkways, indoor and outdoor pools, library, recreation center, playground and picnic area, with a beautiful lake as its crown jewel.

Berkeley displays a great mix of homes from cozy cottages and bungalows to modern lofts and town homes. A thriving family neighborhood with a historic charm and artistic vibe, there is truly something for everyone here. With all that is happening on in Berkeley, it is destined to grow into one of Denver’s hottest neighborhoods.
