A bedroom community of Greeley, Evans' culture is strongly tied to its more-developed metropolitan neighbor.
Evans forms the northwestern corner of an equilateral triangle with Boulder and Denver. The capital city's pulse is a little over an hour away, while a similar drive west puts residents in beautiful Rocky Mountain National Park.
Evans possesses a wealth of parks and open-space areas. City Park features a playground, pavilion, horseshoe pits, softball arena and lots of shade for picnics; Pioneer Park contains two playgrounds, a nine-hole disc golf course and picnic area; and Village Park offers tennis and basketball. Prairie View Park boasts soccer fields and a skateboard park.
Evans also supports several motels and numerous restaurants. Cuisine options include several Mexican restaurants, a sauerkraut-burger joint and a mix of fast-food locales to satisfy hungry travelers.
