Englewood – a veritable gold mine

Once primarily known as a promising spot for prospectors, you’ll soon discover Englewood is a regular gold mine in its own right. 10 miles south of downtown Denver, Englewood is known for its residential neighborhoods, numerous parks, and charming downtown. In southwestern Englewood, the sprawling Belleview Park includes walking trails and a petting zoo. With light rail access to central Denver and a free local shuttle, it’s easy to get from your Englewood vacation rental to sights like Fiddler’s Green Amphitheatre, the Museum of Outdoor Arts, and Pirates Cove Water Park.

Englewood’s parks, recreation, and beyond

While Englewood boasts a park system that includes more than 250 acres of green space, the biggest and most popular is Belleview Park, a hit with families thanks to its petting zoo and rides on a seasonal miniature train. More than 20 miles of bike paths wind throughout the city, connecting it with a system of regional cycling trails – making an Englewood vacation rental with bike storage a good idea for exploring the area. Farther west, the 18-hole Broken Tee Golf Course includes a driving range and a restaurant.

It’s all good in Englewood

When it’s time to beat the heat, locals head to Pirates Cove, an open-air water park with waterslides, a lazy river, and even a man-made beach. Music lovers can catch live shows at the Gothic Theater, where trendy acts play in a converted 1920s moviehouse, and the 18,000-seat Fiddler’s Green Amphitheatre features live summer concerts in an outdoor space. Works from The Museum of Outdoor Art are located throughout the city, and you can see several sculptures at the Englewood Civic Center. The museum also has a number of indoor galleries, too.

Winter in Englewood–a bright idea

While the city averages 66 inches of snowfall each year, Englewood’s 249 annual sunny days mean even the chilly winter months tend to be bright and clear, and seasonal sports like snowshoeing and sledding are popular. Winter lows tend to hover around 19ºF, but Januaries have been known to get as chilly as -31ºF. The summer months tend to be fairly warm, with highs in the 80s from June through August. Spring and fall are mild, and highs can range from 54ºF to 78ºF. You’ll find Englewood vacation rentals are generally somewhat cheaper during the fall and spring seasons.

Purple mountain majesty in Englewood

At an elevation of 5,371 feet above sea level, the city of Englewood is even farther up than its mile-high neighbor to the north. On the western edge of the high plains, Englewood is just east of the Front Range of the Rocky Mountains, and eagle-eyed visitors can spot the snow-capped peaks on clear days from a number of vantage points around the city. Englewood is located within the valley of the South Platte River, a popular destination for flyfishers thanks to its thriving trout population.
