Northglenn is a suburban community located 7 miles north of Denver. The city encompasses 7.5 square miles, and is strategically located adjacent to Interstate 25, Colorado's primary north/south transportation corridor, with interchanges at 104th Avenue and 120th Avenue and an overpass at Community Center Drive.
The overpass and interchanges provide access to Northglenn's retail centers, government center, recreation center, and award-winning parks. With university branch campuses, community colleges and technical schools located in or nearby the city, there is a substantial supply of well-trained professional and technical employees available to the business community.
The business and development communities are also assisted by the Metro North Chamber of Commerce, Adams County Economic Development, Inc., and DRCOG (Denver Regional Council of Governments). The quality of planning and development in Northglenn has created a distinctive sense of community that is uncommon in many modern cities.
Northglenn began in 1959 as a planned community, and gained national recognition from LIFE magazine for its success in large-scale community development.
The city's 35,789 residents enjoy small neighborhoods with easily accessible schools, convenient shopping centers, parks, lakes, open space and outdoor recreational facilities. The community elements are connected by the Greenway Trail network, consisting of 28 miles of off-street walking and biking paths. When fully developed, the network will include 30 miles of trails.
Northglenn's public recreation center provides affordable indoor recreation for all ages, including a full-service gym, weight room, pool and racquetball courts. The center also hosts cultural, educational and senior citizen functions in its adjoining theater auditorium and meeting rooms.
Since the incorporation of the city in 1969, Northglenn has grown and evolved into a well-balanced community that is an affordable and desirable place to live, work, and conduct business.
