Welcome to Northglenn
An original in the concept of “planned communities,” Northglenn began in 1959 and gained national recognition from LIFE magazine for its success as a large-scale community development. Today, the city’s residents enjoy small neighborhoods with easily accessible schools, shopping centers, parks, lakes, open space and outdoor recreational facilities.
The community elements and Northglenn’s 550-acre park system are connected by the Greenway Trail System—28 miles of hiking and biking paths. Still growing, this network will eventually include 30 miles of trails. The Webster Lake and E. B. Rains Jr. Memorial Park received America’s Crown Community Award by American City and County Magazine for its rehabilitation and re-design. The updated park is one of the city’s most popular spots and includes three acres of improved trails and picnic areas, gardens and trees. The park also includes a sensory playground and a place to rent paddleboats. Northglenn’s public recreation center offers a variety of recreation opportunities including a gym, weight room, pool, and racquet ball courts.
As the name implies, Northglenn is located north of Denver seven miles to be precise. The city is strategically located adjacent to I-25, Colorado’s primary north/south transportation corridor.
