Regis Neighborhood History
The Regis Neighborhood was originally part of Denver’s Berkeley neighborhood until the I-70 construction in the 1960’s defined Regis as its own community. Famous for Regis University, established in 1887 as the School of the Sacred Heart, it was renamed in 1921 in honor of the Jesuit saint, John Francis Regis. It is one of 28 Jesuit colleges and universities in the United States.
Regis Neighborhood Boundaries
The Regis Neighborhood is bound by Clear Creek to the Northwest, 52nd Avenue to the North, Federal Boulevard to the East, and I-70 to the South.
Regis Neighborhood Amenities
The Regis Neighborhood offers affordable housing and combines both charm and charisma in an up and coming area. Willis Case Golf Course, Inspiration Point Park, Berkeley Lake and Rocky Mountain Lake Park are some of the outdoor amenities inhabitants enjoy. The area is famous for Regis University, though for the most part college life is contained to the campus and just a few blocks beyond.
Dining attractions include The Noshery, a charming café and bakery as well as Goldspot Brewery, a light-hearted taproom and popular location. Regis is one of the last areas to be affected by the Highlands boom, and is one of Denver’s best kept secrets for competitively priced homes.
