What is your price range? Depending on how much you have to spend, you will know which side of the park you will land on. Both are great and you can read about them more here:

That is a question that is hard to answer without knowing more about you and your specific needs, but as you can see from the previous answers, the East Side seems to be a bit more popular than the West Side but that's like saying Filet Mignon is better than Lobster. You cant go wrong with either. Proximity to schools is always a concern for parents with school age kids. If you fall into that category, you should keep that in mind as well.

My office sits in the middle of Washington Park on Old South Gaylord St. The next time you're visiting Denver, why don't I block out some time to show you Wash Park.

Good question. Generally, the East side of Wash Park is considered more preferable due to the price range of the homes, size of homes, Old Gaylord area, etc. Some consider that the more 'classic' homes are on the East side. But both sides are in one of the most desirable locations in the Denver Area. Your preference will probably have to do more with price range, size and style of home, particular block and neighborhood, rather than which side.
The best thing about moving to East Wash Park or West Wash Park is that you are in a no lose situation. I have a client working to finish up some details on a home in West Wash Park to go on the market in the next week or so on Clarkson Street. Feel free to contact me if you are still looking and havent found the right place. It will be in the $400,000 range and of course a short and beautiful walk to the park.

But if you are thinking more micro within the neighborhood of Wash Park, there are certain sections that command a higher price point. The highest factor being the proximity to the actual park. Another factor would be walking distance to shops and restaurants on Old Gaylord, and to less extent to those on University and Alameda. And like any other urban Denver neighborhood it really depends on the architectural integrity of the particular block in question. Visit the link I attached below to learn even more about Wash Park.

Happy House Hunting,
I feel that each side has it's own distinct personality. "Preferable" definition should probably be left to individual interpretation, so It all depends on what best suits your lifestyle and personality. You have shopping and restaurants on both sides. East side has been more expensive for years and I have noticed the days on the market are typically shorter on the east side as well. Right now the inventory on both sides is slim to say the least, but if you'd like to check out both sides or have me send you some markets stats (days on market, average price per sq. ft. etc) please don't hesitate to let me know! I'm happy to help as I work with a lot of buyers on both sides of Wash Park.
