Wheat Ridge: Where character is rooted in rich history.
Centrally located with easy access to I-70, Wheat Ridge boasts deep historical roots and a strong sense of community. Located just 15 minutes from downtown Denver and 40 minutes from Denver International Airport, Wheat Ridge sits at the base of the Rocky Mountains and provides residents with stunning views and a multitude of options for shopping and dining. The Arvada Light Rail zips through town and offers a hassle-free way to take advantage of it all.
Wheat Ridge gets an A+ for its educational opportunities. Students K-12 have 17 different schools to choose from that include a mix of public, private, and charter. And advanced education is offered by Red Rocks Community College.
Wheat Ridge is packed with recreation options for all ages. The Stenger Soccer Complex and Apex Field House offer youth and adult sports. For those who love the great outdoors, there is the 300-acre Wheat Ridge Greenbelt, offering breathing room and open space right in the heart of the city. Clear Creek Trail is a popular regional trail that connects Denver to Golden, with 6.5 miles of paved trail running through Wheat Ridge. A multitude of parks, including dog parks, invite residents and their furry friends to enjoy the abundance of Colorado’s sunny days.
As a nod to its agricultural history and a continued celebration of the unique character of Wheat Ridge, every year in August the city holds a Carnation Festival. With live music, a parade, multiple vendors, a variety of food options, and a fine art show, the Carnation Festival epitomizes the vibrance and community spirit of this former western outpost.
