If the observatory does not interest you, Observatory Park offers tennis courts, a playground for the kids and picnic areas to relax with family and friends.
The neighborhood surrounding Observatory Park is a quiet, tree-lined residential one. Like many other popular neighborhoods Observatory Park has a mix of scraped homes and older, refinished homes. Homes in this neighborhood are large and on a decent size lot. It has become a sought after location for families as it has a strong school system. Home values range from 850k to above a million and the number of homes left that to be scraped is minimal since the neighborhood has become so popular.
There not many local stores in the neighborhood, although, around the University are restaurants and coffee shops that locals can walk, run or bike to. The neighborhood is in close proximity to I-25 and Colorado Blvd and boasts two light rail stops which makes it a very desirable place to people working in the DTC or other commutes.
