Central Denver

The City and County of Denver is Colorado’s state capital. In recent years, Denver has enjoyed an opportunity to redevelop some very large areas near the city center, giving it population growth and exciting new architecture. With a population of over 716,492, Denver is the largest city in Colorado, the 19th largest city in the United States, and is one of the fastest growing major cities in the country. Central Denver is home to many nationally recognized museums and the second largest performing arts center in the US. As home to the Denver Broncos, the Colorado Rockies, the Denver Nuggets, and the Colorado Avalanche, Denver is the smallest metropolitan area in the US to host a team in all four major sports.

Most Denver neighborhoods contain parks or other features that are the focal point of the neighborhood. In addition to its 200 parks, Denver is crossed by three outstanding recreational trail systems, which run next to water features: Cherry Creek, the South Platte River, and the Highline Canal. The presence of these and other bike trails, plus bus and light rail service, enable many Denver residents to get around easily without the need to own a car.
