Chapter 5: Park Hill, Denver

Greater Park Hill Community, Inc.


Greater Park Hill is a uniquely integrated neighborhood in Denver, Colorado. Although the proportion of White residents in the city declined from 66.7 percent to 61.4 percent between 1980 and 1990, Park Hill's White population remained stable at about 36 percent. By 1980, under the assumption that Park Hill had already passed a racial tipping point, many urban researchers predicted imminent resegregation. This has not occurred. In fact, one developing trend finds more White Anglos and White Hispanics moving into predominantly African-American neighborhoods.
