Greenwood Village, Colorado
 

Located just south of Denver, Greenwood Village was first settled around 1860, when farms and orchards sprang up after gold was discovered at the meeting point of Cherry Creek and the South Platte River.

The town incorporated in 1950, but retained its open feel with more than 300 acres of parks and 100 acres of undeveloped open space. The trail system provides 40 miles of scenic walking and biking areas. The Curtis Arts and Humanities Center, housed in a restored 1914 schoolhouse, hosts concerts and exhibits.

Greenwood Village houses the Denver Technological Center, a development of large buildings outside of Denver where many technology-oriented companies are based. Commuters into the Tech Center raise Greenwood Village's daytime population from around 13,000 to more than 70,000 people.

Greenwood Village offers a wide variety of recreational and cultural activities that appeal to all ages from "pee wee" to seniors. In addition to sports and art activities, residents enjoy art exhibits, lectures, and outdoor concerts.

Outdoor interests can be pursued in the many open spaces, parks, playgrounds, and shelters or on the pedestrian, equestrian and bicycle trails that wind through the Village. Greenwood Village parks, trails and open spaces are a large part of what makes the Village such a special place to live and visit.

The Village’s most significant open space area, the Marjorie Perry Nature Preserve, provides picturesque views of the Rocky Mountains and a peaceful setting for users to relax, reflect and enjoy the natural environment. The Village also has award winning parks such as Westlands Park and Silo Park where families can play in the playground or enjoy a picnic in the park. 

The Village also offers the residents a skate board park at William McKinley Carson Park, and parks for equestrian users such as Rollin D. Barnard Park and Alexander Lane Equestrian Park. The Village is fortunate to have two significant regional trail systems traverse through the community: the High Line Canal Trail on the west side of the city and the Cherry Creek Trail on the east side of the city.
