As a primarily-residential sector of the Denver metro area, Thornton is loaded with amenities for the folks who call it home: there are 81 public parks scattered throughout the community, featuring everything from playgrounds to dog parks to hiking trails to a prairie dog habitat—many parks also host musical performances as part of the annual “Twist and Shout” summer concert series.

Much larger nature preserves like Rocky Mountain Arsenal National Wildlife Refuge and the vast, rugged landscape of the Front Range are easily accessible right outside of town as well. Residents are only separated from downtown Denver by a 25-minute drive, making it easy to hop down into the city for work or leisure at any time.
