Updated: 12-01-2021 05:13pm

Denver’s former airport has evolved into one of the nation’s finest master-planned communities. Central Park, formerly Stapleton, showcases 50 parks with more on the way. There are plenty of places to explore. Residents can bike to the 80-acre Central Park, stroll through numerous neighborhood greenbelts, and wander along Westerly Creek. Your green neighborhood retreat is never far from home.

From an everyday errand to an all-day shopping trip, it’s easy to find what you want at Central Park with more than 100 shops. You can stop by neighborhood boutiques in the Town Center or plan a date night at The Shops at Northfield Stapleton. Everything is just around the corner. There are many neighborhood swimming pools and recreation areas. From lap lanes and diving boards to jet streams and shallow spots, each community location is unique.

Central Park is home to a dozen Denver schools featuring outstanding curriculums. The community has attracted a particularly well-educated group of home buyers with 60 percent of the adult residents having earned college degrees. Central Park is also business ready.

Central Park is connected to the metro Denver area by light rail.
