Athmar Park is a residential neighborhood located in southwest Denver, Colorado. It consists mostly of bungalow-style homes and all-brick ranches built in the 1940’s and 1950’s. Alameda Avenue borders the neighborhood on the north, Mississippi Avenue on the south, Federal Boulevard on the west and the South Platte River on the east. The median property price in Athmar Park is $306,000 and a price per square foot of $310.
The City of Denver annexed the eastern portion of the neighborhood in 1902. Other areas of the community were initially farmland or part of Arapahoe County. Jefferson County extended into West Alameda Avenue in 1935. In 1943, the City of Denver annexed the Mountain View Park subdivision which is west of South Zuni Street.
On June 16, 1965, the South Platte River flooded parts of Southwest Denver, including residential, industrial and commercial sections of Athmar Park. At the time the flood was called the “Worst Natural Disaster in Denver’s History.” The neighborhood got its namesake from the land in the middle which was state school property. Two brothers purchased the land at auction in 1946. Lastly, they renamed the subdivision they bought Athmar Park.
