Arvada has spread considerably from its historic beginning- a place with sprawling horse ranches and a rich agricultural base-to an estimated population now exceeding 122,000 and it’s easy to see why. Arvada sits comfortably between Denver, Broomfield, and Boulder, so commutes are short and head starts on weekend escapes to the mountains are effortless!
Still a bit rural, Arvada is known for its ranch-style homes built in the 1950s and 1960s, large yards, and family-friendly communities. You’ll also find farms, country estates, and a golf course community-West Woods Ranch.
Recreational opportunities abound at the Apex Center, Olde Towne Arvada features cobblestone walkways, unique shops, and quaint restaurants, and The Arvada Center-one of the largest cultural centers in the country-offers theater productions, concerts, and educational classes. Arvada has done an excellent job of preserving its history while continuing to develop responsibly, making it a wonderfully well-balanced place to call home.
