Athmar Park is a centrally located, little-known neighborhood with a bright future. It boasts wide streets, several nice parks, easy access to downtown and a good mix of mid-century homes and traditional bungalows dating back to 1927. The neighborhood association is very active, organizing multiple monthly events like bike tours, movie nights and picnics. Athmar Park is perhaps most well-known for its authentic Vietnamese and Mexican restaurants, attracting folks from all over Denver.

Little Saigon Business District - While this area has long been the go-to for Vietnamese shopping and restaurants, the city made it official in 2014. Located along Federal Blvd between Mississippi and Alameda, a few highlights include: New Saigon Restaurant, Pho Duy Restaurant and Little Saigon Super Market.
Platte River Bike Trail System - The Platte River stretches the entire east side of Athmar Park. Along this river you'll find a multi-use path that stretches from Thornton to the Chatfield Reservoir. Residents use this path for recreation as well as a way to access nearby popular areas like South Broadway.
Chain Reaction Brewing -Opened in 2012, this small, unassuming brewery is popular among the locals and regularly supports Athmar Park community events.
Alameda Square Shopping Center – This newly revitalized shopping plaza was the City of Denver's first shopping center.
