The Polo Grounds Neighborhood

In 1909 the Denver Country Club formed a polo team called the ‘Freebooters’ and began playing on the grounds of the Denver Country Club. Understandably, the club golfers had a bit of a problem with this use, and in 1920 Ira and Albert Humphreys, Lafayette Hughes, and Laurence Phipps incorporated the Polo Club and purchased 160 acres of property for $62,000. Lafayette Hughes created a Polo Club Home Owner’s Association in 1946 in order to protect the remaining residents and to promote their continued privacy and seclusion. Following his death in 1958, 34 acres were sold to create the Polo Club Place Subdivision. By 1977, the former site of the polo club stables were being developed as condominiums and custom built homes.

Today it remains one of the most exclusive and secluded neighborhoods in the city in spite of its proximity to Cherry Creek and Downtown. Interesting that an unassuming, plain brown wooden fence along University Boulevard is now what helps Polo Club maintain its long standing goal of privacy.

The Lowry Neighborhood

A planned mixed-usage area with distinct boundaries, the Lowry neighborhood has garnered awards and plenty of attention since it broke ground in 1996. With retail, education and recreation opportunities, corporate and residential real estate, plus parks and open space all within its three square miles, Lowry is a complete community. The centralized East Denver-West Aurora location is an easy commute to all points in the metro area. Its borders are defined by the previous, gated venue: Lowry Air Force Base. Hangers No. 1 and 2 remain as part of Wings Over the Rockies Aviation & Science Museum, where military planes are displayed indoors and out. Officers’ quarters were transformed into distinctive duplexes; other government housing and buildings were turning into lofts, apartments, and business offices.

New construction includes an impressive parkway of million-dollar mansions on Sixth Avenue. Lowry’s final completion date in 2011 includes a total of 4,600 homes and apartments with around 10,000 residents. A mix of private, charter schools, and those under the jurisdiction of Denver Public Schools cover pre-kindergarten ages to post high school with a small community college campus. Almost 30 percent of the neighborhood is dedicated to parks, trails, wetlands and open space.
