Walkability is the newest buzz word in real estate. Walkscore.com is a website that measures the walkability of neighborhoods in the US and Canada. The website lists local grocery stores, libraries, restaurants, fitness centers, parks and other facilities that surround the home. Based on a 100 point scale, Walk Score gives the ratings from Walker’s Paradise to Car-Dependent. Riverfront Park scores a 92 which is the highest honor of a Walker’s Paradise. As more neighborhoods are becoming pedestrian friendly it is evident that walkability is here to stay. The wonderful Riverfront Park Retailers along with LoDo across the bridge makes Riverfront Park one of Denver’s most walkable neighborhood.
