West Highland is a large neighborhood located in Denver, Colorado. It is located roughly three miles northwest of the downtown area. Denver is known as the Mile High City because it sits one mile above sea level. Denver is home to professional sports teams, popular breweries, corporation headquarters, universities, and a prominent arts district. And, because of its proximity to the Rocky Mountains, Denver also has immediate access to plenty of outdoor recreation.

West Highland is a residential, urban neighborhood. Residentially, this community is largely composed of standalone, single-family homes. However, along West 32nd Avenue, you will find a plethora of local restaurants, bars, and coffee shops. You will also find churches, banks, an elementary school, and other local businesses sprinkled throughout the neighborhood.

Denver distinctly experiences all four seasons and, due to its location in the mountains, can sometimes experience quick shifts in weather. Always check the forecast before leaving for a walk!

West Highland is largely an urban neighborhood with only two greenways. Much of the terrain is artificial, so you and Fido will typically be walking on concrete. Thankfully, most of this neighborhood has well-maintained sidewalks, so at least you will not have to share the road with traffic or other pedestrians. 

This neighborhood is also rather hilly which makes sense as Denver is located within in the foothills of the Rocky Mountain range. As you walk to the east in West Highland, you should experience a noticeable drop in elevation. 

The boundaries of West Highland include West 38th Street to the north, Federal Boulevard to the east, West 29th Street to the south, and Sheridan Boulevard to the west. West 32nd Avenue is also home to a large gathering of local businesses and restaurants, so that street may have more congested traffic than the rest of the neighborhood.

There are two greenways located in West Highland and many more in the surrounding neighborhoods. The first public park is Pferdesteller Park. This small park has a playground, places to sit, a basketball court, water fountains, and a large grassy area for general recreation. Unfortunately, there is no off-leash area located in Pferdesteller Park.


The second greenway located in West Highland is Highland Park. This larger greenway is home to a public library branch, a playground, parking, a picnicking area, and a large grassy field. Again, there is no off-leash area in Highland Park. Other nearby greenways include Viking Park, Osceola and 29th Park, César Chávez Park, Sloan's Lake Park, and Panorama Park.

The nearest dog park, located in Berkeley Lake Park, is a mile and a half to the north of West Highland. This dog park is open from sunrise to sunset and is a great option if Fido is looking to meet some other local pups!
