Denver's Greenwood Village - Charming Country Ambiance in the City

Greenwood Village

Greenwood Village

As one of the region’s most desirable and prestigious communities, Greenwood Village knows few rivals. Originally a quaint collection of orchards, dairies, farms, and gravel roads, the Village still exudes a charming country ambiance. Today, it takes the form of an extensive system of interlacing parks, greenbelts, parkways, and biking, hiking, and equestrian trails.

Greenwood Village boasts an ideal location, robust economy, and nationally renowned school districts. Both the Cherry Creek and Littleton districts have higher than average ACT and SAT scores.

Besides the views, highlights along the 40 miles of trails that wind through the Village are frequent wildlife sightings, waterways, remnants of historic structures, and colorful gardens.

For the more athletically inclined, Greenwood trails connect with a regional network reaching to Downtown Denver, Cherry Creek State Park and Reservoir, the South Platte Valley, Chatfield Reservoir, and beyond.

A focus of Greenwood Village cultural life is the renovated 1914 schoolhouse of the Curtis Arts and Humanities Center. Programs and workshops emphasize fine arts and bookmaking, music, Arts in Schools, and Senior Stretch-and-Tone classes.

Another cultural icon is the Koelbel Public Library, located across from the Preserve neighborhood. Koelbel offers an extensive collection of books, periodicals, and videos together with an art gallery, espresso bar, and used-book store.

Greenwood Park, Trails, and Recreation Department hosts award-winning events exclusively for residents. Greenwood Village Day includes hands-on art activities, interactive games, and live stage shows for young and old alike.

Adult softball, volleyball, and basketball leagues run throughout the summer. Golfers will have little difficulty finding a set of links to match their game. Area golf courses include championship-level courses at Lone Tree, Glenmoor Country Club, South Suburban Golf Course, and exclusive Cherry Hills Country Club.

The exclusive neighborhoods feature inspiring views of the Front Range mountains, Downtown Denver, and landscaped greenbelts. Detached, single-family luxury homes priced from the high 500’s to well over $5 million.

Meanwhile, discerning diners are certain to delight in the area’s superb selection of fine restaurants: Venice, Il Forniao, Morton’s, Del Frisco’s, and Shanahan’s, just to name a few. Or, chefs can select from a variety of fresh ingredients available at Tony’s Specialty Foods, Whole Foods Market, and the gourmet King Soopers at Orchard Plaza.

Greenwood Village residents enjoy quick commutes to just about anywhere in the metro area, the mountains, and DIA. The area is bisected by I-25 and the Light Rail line. In addition E-470 and I-225 are close by. Busy executives will appreciate knowing that it’s also not far to Centennial Airport.
