Thornton

Welcome to Thornton

Thornton was first settled in 1954, primarily by World War II veterans and their families. Located just 10 miles north of Denver, Thornton’s location offers an ideal environment for business, recreation, and living.

Outdoor activities abound in Thornton with 230 acres of open space at seven different locations and more than 40 city parks. Lighted tennis courts, athletic fields, indoor and outdoor swimming pools, a state-of-the-art recreation center, gymnasiums and outdoor concerts offer recreation opportunities for people for all ages and activity levels. Thornton also runs Thorncreek Golf Course, an 18-hole, 72-par, 144-acre public Championship golf course featuring a pro shop, driving range, restaurant, putting green, cart and club rental, and on-site pro. Thorntonfest is held in May, and features a car show, climbing wall and carnival rides. Other activities at the festival include a petting zoo, canine disk contest and three stages of live music.

Thornton is located closer to the Denver International Airport than virtually any other point in the metropolitan area. With the passage of FasTracks, the future will bring alternative modes of transportation for Thornton commuters, including a commuter rail, improvements to I-25 and additional bus service.
