When you become a parent, the process of finding a new home becomes more difficult. Now that you have little ones, it’s important to settle down in an area that your kids will love just as much as you do. If you’re looking for a home near fun and entertainment, look no further than the homes in Observatory Park, where you’ll be close by these kid-friendly attractions:

Children’s Museum of Denver at Marsico Campus
Let your kids explore their creative sides at the Children’s Museum of Denver, located just a short distance from homes in Observatory Park. Kids can head to the art studio to mold clay, paint on glass and collaborate on a masterpiece with other children nearby. Not only will kids love the opportunity to play with paints and other materials, but you’ll also get to take home a souvenir from your day at the museum to cherish forever!

The Children’s Museum of Denver also gives Observatory Park parents the unique opportunity to teach kids about healthy eating in a fun way. Culinary experts at the museum hold regular classes that teach kids about how healthy food can still be yummy, getting them involved in making smart choices early on in life.

Downtown Aquarium

Just a short drive from Observatory Park is the Downtown Aquarium. Kids flock to the glass of this aquarium to observe over 500 species of animals inside. But, the real fun comes when kids can get up close and personal with the animals inside the Stingray Reef touch tank. Do your kids dream of seeing a real, live mermaid? When you live in Observatory Park, you can make these dreams come true thanks to the Mystic Mermaids show at the Downtown Aquarium. Here, mermaids will swim inside the tanks while teaching observers about taking care of the environment. Who said kids can’t have fun and learn something new?
