The neighborhood is mid-century modern (1950s era) with many homes designed by Cliff May. May was credited with designing the California Ranch. Cliff May used the sun’s angles, vegetation and wind direction into passive heating and cooling. May never was trained as an architect, but he had the “touch”. His homes are wonderful
The homes have floor-to-ceiling windows, vaulted ceilings, open floor plans and many of them have been totally renovated so they are up to today’s standards. The mature landscaping gives homes sought-after privacy. It is a friendly, awesome neighborhood!

Harvey Park is part of Denver’s Parks and Recreation District. The park offers picnic areas, a lake and paths for walking and biking. It makes a hot summer day seem cool and refreshing.
Harvey Park was part of a cattle ranch owned by Major Arthur Harvey. He sold his acreage to the Axel Nielsen with Mortgage Investment Company. The firm financed the development and in 1953 contractors began to build homes. There were no paved streets, nor phone and bus service.
Many of the original homeowners used their GI financing earned during their service in WWII.
