Incorporated in 1903, Englewood is a full-service city 20 minutes south of downtown Denver, where residents and businesses benefit from major transportation corridors and a central location. The city is known for its small-town charm and its proximity to a major metropolitan area.
For an example of why many people move to Colorado, come to Englewood's City center. Here 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. At the Magness Arena watch the DU Pioneers compete for yet another NCAA hockey championship. An area must-see is the newly restored Gothic Theatre, a beautiful art-deco venue dating back to the 1920s.
Englewood sits adjacent to two large reservoirs where visitors enjoy swimming, sailing, boating and water skiing. This community 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 away in the Rocky Mountains.
