Pulaski Park, Cherry Creek Park and James N Manley Park provide most of the outdoor recreation in the area. With a reputation as a shopping hot-spot of Denver, most of Cherry Creek consists of retail stores, causing less land to be zoned for parks.

For your grocery shopping, choose between Safeway or Whole Foods. Both are impressive in size and carry items ranging from national brands to local, farm-to-fork produce. However, don't miss the Cherry Creek Fresh Market that takes place from May to October. Snag some rich fresh produce, and sample homemade crepes as you browse the stalls. Locals rave about the biscuit bus serving up hot and fresh pastries for patrons of this market. Choose the Wednesday or Saturday open hours and bring a basket and bike to the market for a fun-filled afternoon of good eats.
With a reputation for luxury, the cost of living for Cherry Creek residents surpasses the Denver average. The cost for a house in Cherry Creek averages $700,000, while most one-bedroom apartments run close to $2,200 per month.
This high cost of living sends the prices for everyday goods and services higher as well. Most restaurants in the area are in the heart of Cherry Creek, making their prices reflect their ideal location.

This neighborhood resides just north of the Cherry Creek Trail, which expands 35 plus miles from the heart of downtown all the way south, passing by Cherry Creek. This trail gives residents the option to ride their bike into the city whenever it strikes their fancy.
Cherry Creek is truly an impressive neighborhood for a worldly palette. Piatti evokes an Italian's dream come true with their spinach-ricotta ravioli and lemon cream.

Yet health isn't forgotten at Piatti, as Westword, a popular local magazine, awarded the best Caesar salad in Denver to Piatti.

In 1989, Cherry Creek was approved as the first Business Improvement District, giving it a leg up to become one of the biggest shopping centers in the area.

A large art scene thrives in Cherry Creek. There are over 30 galleries within the Cherry Creek neighborhood alone.
