Welcome to Westminster
Located between Denver and Boulder, Westminster offers a mix of older ranch style homes and new housing developments. Westminster is a place to enjoy dramatic mountain views and generous open space, trails, parks and golf courses as you take advantage of Colorado’s outdoor-oriented lifestyle. Westminster is a vibrant, young community. A true sense of community is maintained through its award-winning recreation and community centers, libraries and programs. The city offers more than 2,000 acres of open space, 40 miles of hiking and biking trails, 54 parks and playground facilities and four golf courses. The Westminster Promenade, an outdoor entertainment and business-oriented development in a resort-like setting, features areas for children to play, performance venues, outdoor restaurants, cafes, a lake, trails and sculptures to enjoy.

In July 2006, Westminster was ranked as the 24th best place to live in the country by Money magazine. The city also recently took top honors in an international competition sponsored by the United Nations, winning the prestigious LivCom award for excellence in water and waste management, land use and protection.
