Get To Know The Area
Englewood’s CityCenter is a prime example of why many people move to Colorado. Residential, commercial and cultural facilities blend to form a civic patchwork connected by grassy walkways and accessible by car, bus, bike, and light rail.
The private University of Denver is located here, responsible for the city’s funky, college-town character and Condoleezza Rice’s bachelor of arts degree. Watch the DU Pioneers compete for yet another NCAA hockey championship at the Magness Arena. An area must-see is the newly restored Gothic Theatre, a beautiful art-deco venue dating back to the 1920s. Meanwhile, the Museum of Outdoor Arts at the Englewood Civic Center boasts a collection of public art and an amphitheater that hosts the Sounds of Summer Concert Series and a variety of other musical and dramatic performances.
What To Do For Fun
There’s plenty to do in and near Englewood for families. In the summer, make a splash at Pirates Cove Water Park, featuring three waterslides, a lazy river and perfect-for-kids water playground, or scale the towering walls at Earth Treks Climbing Gym. The Broken Tee Golf Course offers links-style play, as well as a footgolf course. Enjoy swimming, sailing, boating and water skiing at Cherry Creek State Park.
Englewood is also home to a well-designed recreation center, a skateboard park and several athletic fields. Meanwhile, hiking, skiing, camping and other forms of alpine recreation are just an hour’s drive west.
Englewood is also a transportation hub with two light rail stops on the Denver regional passenger rail system and exceptional roadway access provided from all directions by US Highway 285 (Hampden Ave.) and US Highway 85 (Santa Fe Blvd.). Bus service is provided by RTD, including the most frequent bus route in the region the 0, and the free Englewood Trolley that connects the Englewood light rail station to downtown Englewood, the medical district, civic center and Museum of Outdoor Arts.
