Central Park

Denver, Colorado

Central Park (formerly Stapleton)

Formerly known as Stapleton, Central Park is a neighborhood within Denver’s city limits. Located east of downtown Denver, Central Park surrounds the decommissioned Stapleton international airport, which closed in 1995.

It is the largest residential neighborhood within Denver’s city limits. It is an amazing master plan community mixed with stunning homes, big-box retail, boutique-style shopping, and excellent dining, including the famous Stanley marketplace.

About 20 minutes northeast of downtown Denver, Central Park is just south of I-70 and about 5-10 minutes from the Denver International Airport.

If you are looking for a suburban feel, while being close to the airport and downtown, Central Park is the perfect place.

Affordable new construction homes, modern luxury homes, and colonial luxury homes highlight the mix of homes in this area.
