Considered one of Denver's premier real estate gems, Washington Park ("Wash Park") gets its namesake from the 165-acre park that creates a border between East Washington Park and West Washington Park.

The Washington Park Home Tour, held annually in May, showcases several distinctive homes in East Wash Park and benefits area students at Steele Elementary School. From the historic homes to those with newly styled architecture, the home tour is a popular destination for the building, remodeling and interior decorating ideas it highlights.

An annual garden tour includes small and large garden styles, including xeriscaping and water features.

Wash Park (named after George Washington) is a natural and recreational paradise.
