Guide to Stapleton
Probably the best place to start when describing Stapleton to a new visitor is to answer a few typical questions:
Is Stapleton a city? No, Stapleton is a neighborhood in Denver, Colorado, planned to blend into the surrounding city neighborhoods.
A planned neighborhood? Does that make Stapleton a cul-de-sac suburb? No again. Stapleton is an ongoing example of the New Urbanism "school" of sustainable community design, focused on smart growth and walkable neighborhoods. Stapleton is NOT a gated community, and there are NO cul-de-sacs - the Stapleton street grid confirms (as much as possible) to the surrounding neighborhoods.
Do planes still land at Stapleton? You'd be surprised, but some people still ask this question! Maybe it is because the old airport control tower still stands at the corner of Central Park Blvd and Martin Luther King Blvd. No, planes land at Denver International Airport - the old Stapleton runways are all gone, recycled into new building materials!
Okay, so let's learn more about what Stapleton IS today...
