Englewood, Colorado

For newcomers to Colorado, there is some confusion about the size and location of the City of Englewood.  The  U.S. Postal Service assigns the place name “Englewood” to seven ZIP codes, which cover areas adjacent and southeast of the city, so many of the addresses written as “Englewood, Colorado” are actually in the cities of Sheridan, Cherry Hills Village, Greenwood Village or Centennial. Business parks along the I-25 corridor, such as the Denver Tech Center, Inverness and Meridian, are also located in these zip codes, but none of these areas are within the City of Englewood, which lies several miles west.

The City of Englewood is located immediately south of the City of Denver.  With a population of approximately 30,255, Englewood is the 4th most populous city in Arapahoe County and the 20th most populous city in Colorado. It is a full-service city with its own, independent park, library and public works systems. Due to vast, early-established water rights, Englewood provides water to most of the south metro area. Englewood has over 250 acres of parks and open space and, in 2006, it opened Pirates Cove water park as part of a multi-million-dollar improvement package for the city parks system. In addition to Pirates Cove many improvements were made to the South Platte River Trail system and to the Englewood Recreation Center.

Northeast Englewood is home to one of the largest hospital complexes in the metro area. The hospital district – which contains Swedish Medical Center and Craig Hospital, a top-ten nationally ranked rehabilitation hospital for spinal cord and traumatic brain injury rehabilitation – is the backbone of the city economy.

The city enjoyed a huge building boom shortly after WWII and most of the city was built up by 1960. Englewood offers small town convenience with big city amenities. Light rail transit, excellent access to the Denver metro area and affordable housing  are among the many reasons people choose to live here. Englewood is served by the Englewood Public Schools. A few small parts of the city are served by the Littleton Public Schools and the Sheridan Public Schools.
