Athmar Park, located in the southwestern area of Denver, Colorado, is a neighborhood made up mainly of homes built in the post-war economic boom of the late 1940s and 1950s. As such, the majority of homes here adhere to one of two architectural styles that were prevalent during these decades: the bungalow-style home and the all-brick ranch home. Those relocating and looking for Denver real estate will quickly find that Athmar Park offers some of the best bargains to be found in the city.
In terms of ethnicity, Athmar Park has a predominance of Hispanic residents. They make up about 65% of the population; most of the rest of the residents are Caucasian, though there is a small African American and Native American presence. Many of the streets in Athmar Park are characterized by streets that slowly curve.
Athmar Park has only gradually been added to the city of Denver. This process began in 1902 and proceeded through stages in 1932 and 1946. Today, the neighborhood is distinguished by the public schools operated by the Denver school system here. One outstanding example is the Mathematics and Science Leadership Academy, a K-4 school in Athmar Park. To better support the neighborhood children's education, the Denver Public Library operates a branch in Athmar Park. The Athmar Park Branch Library is located on Tejon Street and is open four days each week. The nearby Huston Lake Park provides recreational opportunities for local residents.
