Centrally located just south of the metro Denver area, Englewood is a mix of residential and business properties, coupled with parks and open space. Almost 60 percent of the land area is residential property, and students attend school in the Englewood, Sheridan, Littleton and Cherry Creek school districts. Besides the cultural and recreational amenities in metro Denver, Englewood offers championship golf courses, an in-line hockey/skating park and an expansive recreation center with indoor track, pool, gym and fitness center. The 55-acre CityCenter Englewood is a central public place that connects the site with walkable streets, civic and cultural uses, light rail transit station, retail and office space, residential housing, a public library, outdoor performance space, art museum and outdoor sculpture. The Pirates Cove Family Aquatics Park opened in 2004, and the Swedish Medical Center and Craig Hospital are also located here. | www.englewoodgov.org
