Northglenn is located nine miles north of Denver, Colorado, in western Adams County. 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 of 33,130 and encompasses 7.5 square miles of land.

Northglenn is a community 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.

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.
