Arapahoe Square





Arapahoe Square has long been and continues to be a symbol of Denver revitalization. Developers continue investing in this transformative region, which is heralded as one of the best places to invest in Denver. Arapahoe Square also includes the city's oldest residential neighborhood, Curtis Park. Curtis Park was developed in the 1860s and 1870s. Well-preserved Victorian mansions sit next to duplexes, town homes and the $26 million renovation of former public housing units built circa 1950. The Creamery -- an ice cream parlor turned Mexican takeout and neighborhood hangout -- sits in front of Mestizo-Curtis Park, which was the first of more than 200 parks established in Denver.
