A CITY BETWEEN RIVERS
Welcome to Englewood, Colorado. Englewood is a city in Arapahoe County and home to an estimated population of 30,255 people. The city is beautifully situated in the South Platte River Valley, just south of central Denver. Downtown Englewood is nestled in a spectacular location just east of confluence of Little Dry Creek and the rushing South Platte River. The history of Englewood goes back a long way, more specifically 1858, when settler William Green Russel discovered gold in the area around Little Dry Creek. In 1860, Thomas Skerritt established a home there called Orchard Place. A few years later the first road to Denver was built, and Skerritt actually ploughed the road himself. The oldest section of today’s Englewood is the northwest area. This part houses downtown, the new City Center as well as historic homes dating all the way back to the early 20th century. This is the area of town where the giant General Iron plant was once located, a metal manufacturer that closed its doors in 1990s. The building has since been demolished, and still awaits redevelopment. Englewood’s southwest neighborhood features newer homes and most of the city’s industrial and production facilities. This is also the part of town where residents come to enjoy green space, as it features Englewood’s largest park, Belleview Park, as well as a small reservoir. The main residential area is centered in the southeast section of town, where most of the homes are of newer architecture. The northeast area is home to Englewood and Denver Metro’s largest hospital complexes: Swedish Medical Center and Craig Hospital. The hospital is one of the top ten institutions in the nation for spinal cord and brain injury rehabilitation, and is responsible for the majority of the city’s economy. Finally, the wealthiest and most developed part of the city is the Hampden Hills, which features the largest cluster of modern apartment complexes in the metro area.
