Stapleton’s Neighborhood Names

Stapleton eight neighborhoods have their own character. Their own charm. And they all get their names from what’s around them. Here’s a breakdown of what’s where …

East 29th Avenue: This is Stapleton’s epicenter! The most established, E. 29th Avenue is home to mature trees, the first neighborhood pool, the Town Center, three apartment communities and The Green, which is packed with concerts, movie nights, markets, festivals and more most of the year! And it’s all named for the promenade that runs through the center.

South End: Stapleton residents should really get the credit for this one. They named the neighborhood for its location on the south side of the community. With Central Park Boulevard in the middle, South End neighborhood has such spots as Plum Consignment, Mici’s Handcrafted Italian, multiple medical practices and Sweet Life Nail Bar & Lounge … not to mention Stapleton’s second community pool, two schools and Bladium Sports & Fitness Club. It’s good to be on the end.

Westerly Creek: Home to Stapleton’s first school, this neighborhood offers endless opportunities to explore. Westerly Creek borders its east side, Greenway Park lines its south and Central Park is just to the north. It’s a literal playground of water, hills and trails!

Central Park West and Central Park North: Denver’s third largest park, the 80-acre Central Park gives these neighborhoods their name. And the park is packed with miles of paths, a pond, a sledding hill and one very interesting playground. The Swigert-McAuliffe International campus and the community’s newest pool are also just a few blocks away.

Eastbridge and Bluff Lake: On Stapleton’s eastern side, these two neighborhoods offer quick access to the Central Park Recreation Center as well as Bluff Lake Nature Center, a 123-acre preserve. And Eastbridge neighborhood is also home to a pool and Stapleton’s newest apartment community, Botanica Eastbridge, while Bluff Lake will have a new elementary school in a few months.

Conservatory Green: New, urban, garden-ready … this area is named for the jewel at its center, Conservatory Green and Plaza. It’s the first neighborhood north of The Shops at Northfield Stapleton, and its model homes will begin to open this spring!
