5280 Magazine has just come out with their rankings of Denver’s Best Neighborhoods. I always enjoy reviewing this list. The criteria used is interesting and includes the following:
Price – Comparing avg sales prices in 2020 to those of 2019. Neighborhoods with only a few sales were excluded from the list and this year the list included more neighborhoods on the inexpensive side since they showed more appreciation.
Crime – Data collected from the police department.
School Performance – The results of School Performance Framework (SPF) and not standardized testing due to Covid.
X – Factor – Things such as access to public transportation, parks, and entertainment.
The top 10 are:
- Country Club
- South Park Hill
- Washington Park West
- Platt Park
- Washington Park
- Congress Park
- Sloan Lake
- City Park
And notable Athmar Park at 16. Click the link below for the article in 5280 Magazine online and you can also click on each neighborhood to learn about favorite things to do, restaurants, statistics and demographic information
