La Alma/Lincoln Park is one of Denver’s oldest neighborhoods, and it lies just to the south of today’s Auraria Higher Education Center campus. This is where many a gold-seeker came to find fortune when Denver was settled in the 1850s. The homes here still reflect the rich culture and beautiful attention to architectural detail from that time period.
There are a variety of architectural styles and eras reflected in the homes of La Alma/Lincoln Park. Two-story brick Victorians, row houses, duplexes, brick bungalows, and one-story stucco houses line La Alma/Lincoln Park’s streets. The 1,050-unit Parkway Center apartment and condominium complex is located at 12th Avenue and Galapagos Street, with a prominent frontage on Speer Boulevard. This charming neighborhood is incredibly close to the heart of Downtown, yet still attractively affordable. It’s the last oasis for those wanting to get into a historic neighborhood without the price tag that often accompanies such a venture.
Lincoln Park is a great place to live because of its affordability, location to light rail and walkability to Santa Fe art District. Buyers are able to purchase beautiful Victorians under $400,000.
1150 Inca St #35
Bordered by 6th Avenue, Speer Boulevard, Colfax Avenue and Osage Street, La Alma/Lincoln Park is often referred to as the “West Side.”
It's adjacent to Auraria Campus, which lies to its north. It's adjacent to Civic Center and Capitol Hill on its east. Downtown is just a short distance to the northeast. And aside from the art museum east of Lincoln Park, the Santa Fe Arts District in the neighborhood itself has a thriving gallery row. First Fridays here are the largest in the city. Famed Colorado photographer John Fielder's gallery is here, among others.
URBAN La Alma-Lincoln Park is a vibrant, mixed-use, urban community with parks, major health services, an arts district and cultural facilities, a major grocery store, and proximity to downtown and multiple institutes for higher education, arts, and culture.
TRANSIT-ORIENTED It is well-served by a variety of transportation options, including good light rail and bus service, bike routes and B-Cycle stations, and a rotating inventory of car2go vehicles. With all of the options in place, residents here can feel free to walk, too.
CULTURED It is a diverse neighborhood that maintains its Latino cultural identity, is home to the Santa Fe Arts District and Colorado Ballet, and provides easy access to Denver’s theater district, museum district, and major sports and concert venues.
HISTORIC It is also one of Denver’s oldest neighborhoods; 93% of its residential blocks were half or more developed before 1900 and the remaining 7% developed between 1900 and 1914. Seven locations are on the National Register of Historic Places, four are Denver Historic Landmarks, and 20 qualify for historic preservation under Chapter 30 of the Denver Revised Code.
COMMUNITY The neighborhood provides homes, jobs, and services for a wide variety of ages, lifestyles, economic circumstances, ethnic groups, and family types. Most housing is affordable at a variety of levels ranging from subsidized housing to middle-level market rate. There is a mix of small-lot single-family units, duplexes, row houses, and low-, mid-, and high-rise apartment buildings. The neighborhood is currently growing and enjoying both public and private economic reinvestment.
Stroll the streets of Downtown Denver’s La Alma/Lincoln Park neighborhood and you’ll be taken in by colorful lights decorating many of the homes, the smell of Latino dishes wafting out of windows and the charm of architecture that dates back to the turn of the century. This is a neighborhood teeming with a sense of family and one of the only places left where you’ll often find two and three generations still living in the same few blocks.
In recent years, Santa Fe Drive, La Alma/Lincoln Park’s primary retail and commercial corridor, has come into its own. Revitalized and brimming with cafes, authentic Mexican bakeries, art galleries, photography studios and a variety of offices, this area is alive both day and night. Nearly 20 buildings along this stretch have new facades, including two refurbished historic buildings, giving the entire area a fresh, vibrant feel.
With newly planted trees, a mixture of ethnic cooking and modern offices and the festivities of Denver’s First Friday art gallery shows, the spirit of the city is reflected along each block of this neighborhood. Residents are equally proud to house the Denver Health Medical Center and Denver Public School’s West High School, as well as the Asian and Hispanic Chambers of Commerce and the Latino Cultural and Visitors Center.

Museo de las Americas
La Alma/Lincoln Park is proud to house the first museum in the region dedicated to the artistic and cultural achievements of Latinos in the Americas.
Sunken Gardens Park
Just east of West High School, you’ll find Sunken Gardens Park. Built in 1909 on the site of a city dump, it was created by landscape architect Saco DeBoer, the same architect who created Civic Center Park.
Even though this neighborhood is just minutes from Downtown, its own park gives it a suburban, family feel. This is where neighbors gather, children play and the community reconnects.
This 105-year-old restaurant holds the state’s first liquor license and more mounted bears, deer, elk and other wildlife than you can count. It’s a treasure for those who want a taste of the real west.
The neighborhood is currently undergoing changes with the rebirth of the South Lincoln Park Homes. Mariposa (formerly known as South Lincoln Homes) is owned and managed by Denver Housing Authority (DHA) and contains 270 public housing units on 15.1 acres. DHA's redevelopment plan is being implemented with a mix of housing products, a range of income levels, and sustainable and innovative design features. The goal for the redevelopment is to create an energized transit community with environmental suitability goals, cultural diversity, and close proximity to downtown, offering a spectrum of housing options.
We looked at houses for a while and Barry was always available with questions and to tour homes. When we finally found a house that we wanted, he went above and beyond to negotiate for us and get us what we needed (i.e., repairs, etc). He was excellent! And I will recommend him to everyone I know :) Liz Alvarez
