Small town in Denver. Platt Park has seen a lot of new growth in the last few years. For awhile it was a secret little neighborhood with cute brick bungalows, a great little park and one of the few quaint shopping/restaurant districts in Denver home to Sushi Den and Stella’s the local staple for cramming DU students. Needless to say Platt Park has been discovered in a big way. Platt Park is bordered by Broadway, Downing, I-25 and Evans. For those of you wondering yes there is no “e” in Platt unlike the river. Platt Park was named after James Platt, owner of the Platt Paper Company and one of Denver’s early founders and leaders. Platt Park was originally part of a neighboring city known as South Denver but later was absorbed into Denver. Platt Parks architecture consists of brick, tudors, crasftsman bungalows, Denver squares as well as newly built homes and modern 3 story duplexes. Old South Pearl is the focal point and gathering place of the neighborhood featuring weekly Farmers markets, music festivals throughout the summer and a plethora of restaurants. For the Sushi lover you are not lacking options in Izakaya Den, and the Denver classic, Sushi Den. Visit the Village Cork for a little piece of old world France or indulge in the Denver staple Duffyroll. Don’t be surprised if your morning dog walk turns into coffee with friends at Pajama Baking Company followed by a romp at the park and an afternoon of sipping wine on your neighbors front porch.
