EnglewoodLocated just south of the City of Denver, Englewood is really in the heart of the metro area. The city was founded in 1864 when an Irish immigrant named Thomas Skerritt laid claim to a 640-acre homestead that encompassed most of present-day Englewood. Skerritt is now referred to as “The Father of Englewood.” The city was incorporated in 1903. The 35,000 residents enjoy a small-town feel with all the benefits of a larger city right next door. The city is served by light rail and bus transit linking it to downtown Denver and other locations such as DIA. Englewood is home to more than 2,100 business in the industrial, manufacturing and service sectors. CityCenter Englewood, built on the site of the old Cinderella City, has become a national model for mixed-used transit-oriented development. Swedish Medical Center, a Level 1 trauma center, is one of the metro area’s finest neurotrauma centers and Craig Hospital has been recognized as one of the Top 10 rehabilitation hospitals in the entire country. Entertainment and recreational opportunities abound. The city boats 12 neighborhood parks, an award-winning recreation center, Broken Tee Golf Course, the popular Pirates Cove Family Aquatics Center and Bellview Park, the city’s largest park that also features a small reservoir. The city sits adjacent to the Cherry Creek State Park where visitors can enjoy swimming, sailing, boating and water skiing. Although most of the city falls into the Englewood Public school district, some areas are served by Cherry Creek, Littleton, or Sheridan Public Schools. The southwest side of the city is almost purely residential and includes the city’s newest homes, while the northwest section features homes dating back to the 1910’s. The city’s home values are rising but are still very affordable compared to many of the suburbs in the south end of the metro area. The median home price for homes that closed in the last quarter of 2021 was $530,000, up 16.5% year-over-year. Learn more about Englewood here.
