Northglenn is located nine miles north of Denver, Colorado, in western Adams County along Interstate 25. It began as a planned community in the spring of 1959, when a housing and land development firm finalized plans for a large housing subdivision north of the Denver Metropolitan area. The vision of a well-balanced community included acres of open space for park and recreation development along with residential, industrial, educational and commercial plans. From the first residential development in 1959, Northglenn has grown to a home rule city with a population near 36,500 and encompasses 7.5 square miles of land.
The community is recognized for a well-planned trail system that makes it possible to walk virtually in any direction within the City. Recreational facilities include 550 acres of parks and open space, indoor and outdoor swimming pools, tennis courts, ball fields, and a recreation center. The Northglenn Community Center is one of the largest recreational facilities in the state.
In December of 2001, Northglenn received America's Crown Community Award by American City and County Magazine for the rehabilitation and re-design of one of the City's major parks-Webster Lake and E. B. Rains, Jr. Memorial Park.
Its strategic location allows for easy and convenient access to all parts of the Denver metro area, the city of Boulder, Denver International Airport and the Rocky Mountains. As such, it is the hub of the thriving north metro area.
Northglenn offers affordable housing and it a good choice for a home for those who work in Denver and parts north. Homes in Northglenn are in the $140,000 to $400,000 range. The lower housing prices here makes it very attractive for people who work in the Denver area as well as the northern areas of Colorado.
The climate in Northglenn is dry with low humidity. Such combination results in mild temperatures and abundant sunshine throughout the year. The average elevation in Colorado is 6,800 feet above sea level.
