Probably the best place to start when describing Central Park to a new visitor is to answer a few typical questions:
Central Park? I thought the neighborhood was called Stapleton. It was called Stapleton... but in 2020 the residents voted to change the name and named it after the 80 acre park in the middle of the community.
Is Central Park a city? No, Central Park is a neighborhood in Denver, Colorado, planned to blend into the surrounding city neighborhoods.
A planned neighborhood? Does that make it a cul-de-sac suburb? No again. Central Park is an ongoing example of the New Urbanism “school” of sustainable community design, focused on smart growth and walkable neighborhoods. Central Park is NOT a gated community, and there are NO cul-de-sacs – the street grid confirms (as much as possible) to the surrounding neighborhoods.

More About Central Park
Central Park got its start as a community back in 2002 when the first residents move into the new neighborhood on the site of the former Stapleton International Airport. In 2020 the residents of the neighborhood which had been known as Stapleton voted to rename it as Central Park after the 80 acre park that sits in the middle of the community (as well as a Rec Center, RTD station, and main road that all share the name).
Do planes still land at the site of the old airport? You’d be surprised, but some people still ask this question! Maybe it is because the old airport control tower, which was redeveloped into a restaurant, still stands at the corner of Central Park Blvd and Martin Luther King Blvd. Today planes land at Denver International Airport – the old Stapleton runways are all gone, recycled into new building materials! Here's a virtual tour of the Stapleton Airport and Neighborhood, then and now, courtesy of 9News.
Conveniently located between downtown Denver and Denver International Airport, the development is on the site of the decommissioned Stapleton International Airport which closed in 1995. As new development in Central Park approaches its completion (expected in 2022-23), the community is home to over 29,000 residents living in twelve neighborhoods. Most of Central Park is within the City and County of Denver, but a small section is in the City of Aurora. There are over 1,100 acres of open space, 60 parks, 57 miles of trails, six neighborhood pools, and over a dozen public, private and charter shools.
