Central Park

~Written by Angelina Scolio, University of Denver Internship Student ~

From grazing land for a dairy farm to a bustling aviation hub, to the one of the largest urban redevelopments; the Central Park neighborhood, formerly known as Stapleton, presents a long and storied history. By overcoming challenges and embracing change, the neighborhood has transformed itself into a vibrant community, with repurposed landmarks like the old control tower and Hangar 61 underscoring its innovative spirit. Today, Central Park is one of Denver's newest and largest neighborhoods and is a lively tapestry of the past and present.
