The Neighborhood

The Ruby Hill-Godsman Park neighborhoods are less than 5 miles south of downtown Denver. We have easy access to S. Santa Fe Dr. and I-25 for multiple ways to access downtown or navigate through the Metro area. Located on the west side of I-25, we are conveniently situated for travel to the mountains.

These neighborhoods are a bicyclist’s dream. From W. Florida Ave the South Platte River trail allows a bicyclist to commute downtown without dealing with cars or traffic in less than 10 minutes. Our Bike Trails page has more information on the locations of bike trails and bike lanes in the neighborhood.

We have several great parks and walking trails in the neighborhood, from the Sanderson Gulch Trail and Park, which runs most of the length of the area, to Ruby Hill Park, the largest park in southwest Denver. Overland Pond Park, Athmar Park, and Godsman Parks also provide greenery and recreation for the neighborhood. The city has been implementing several major improvements to the South Platte River and Ruby Hill Park which will continue to benefit the neighborhood in the coming years.

There are 3 major college campuses less than 15 minutes drive from our neighborhood: Auraria campus, University of Denver campus, and Colorado Heights University. And there are 3 light rail stations in close proximity to these neighborhoods. The Evans Station, Broadway Station, or Alameda Station are in walking distance by many residents, and are also quickly accessed by the numerous RTD bus routes on their way to the light rail stations.
