Noteworthy Mention of the Montbello Neighborhood

Montbello neighborhood is located in northeast Denver and was developed in 1965 as the first major annexation of privately owned land to be incorporated into the city. Its boundaries are 56th, Chambers, I-70 and Havana. Long thought to be detached from downtown Denver, the light rail now stops at nearby 33rd and Moline, providing a direct link to Union Station and downtown Denver.

Architecture and Homes in Montbello

Residents enjoy a variety of housing options in Montbello neighborhood, from small two- to three- bedroom brick ranch homes to split-level 1970s style homes. Older, mature trees and well-kept yards frame this quiet neighborhood. There has also been new construction in the area, and most homes are very affordable and a viable option for people looking to escape the central metro area.

Recreation and Culture

One of the most appealing aspects of the Montbello neighborhood is its access to the Rocky Mountain Arsenal Wildlife Refuge. The Arsenal, previously a chemical and weapons manufacturing facility, was scrapped in the late 1970s and an extensive cleanup program began in the 1980s. It was designated a wildlife refuge in 1992, and the 15,000 acres now boasts hiking trails, wildlife viewing opportunities and an animal sanctuary for over 330 species of animals. This pearl in the midst of Denver is one of the largest urban wildlife refuges in the nation.

Montbello neighborhood also has a smattering of smaller parks dotting the landscape. Montbello Cultural Park is home to Montbello High School and Maxwell Elementary, and Falcon, Silverman, Village and Montbello Civic Center Parks round out the places of respite and recreation. And Montbello Recreation Center and Parkfield Lake Park is just east of Chambers providing a spot for locals to meet and socialize.
