Whittier Cole

Adjacent to City Park, this neighborhood of mostly 20th century single-family homes and tree-lined streets has easy access to downtown and the many amenities of City Park.

Originally designed as an elite “suburb” of Capitol Hill, the area has a history as being home to both prominent and working class citizens.

Residents can take advantage of the expansive green space of City Park, the Denver Zoo and Museum of Nature and Science, and the City Park Golf Course. Located at 23rd and York near the zoo is the historically significant St. Ignatius Loyola Church with its red brick and twin bell towers. The area is home to a mix of older bungalows, Victorians and other architectural styles.
