The 8th largest city in Colorado, Arvada boasts a highly educated workforce, a low crime rate and just 3.7 percent unemployment.  Although we realize taste is subjective, there are just some things that no one can argue with! Here is just a handful of reasons people love to work, live and play in Arvada:

  • 3,400 acres of parks, open space and trails
  • 140 parks (a 10-minute walk to the nearest park for any Arvada resident!)
  • 125 miles of hiking, biking and horseback riding trails
  • 10 sports complexes
  • 58 playgrounds
  • 70 sports fields
  • 3 public golf courses
  • 3 skate parks
  • Nearly 250 restaurants
  • 5 breweries and a winery
  • Nationally recognized Arvada Center for the Arts and Humanities
  • Olde Town Arvada – listed on the National Register of Historic District

Arvada’s location also makes it a prime “home base” for its proximity to Denver International Airport, universities and research institutions, hot springs, world-renowned skiing and Denver’s major sports teams. With great schools, affordable housing and 300 days of sunshine, why would you live anywhere else?
