Englewood is bike- and public-transit friendly with a WalkScore of 55. The C and D light-rail lines drop passengers at CityCenter Englewood, a transportation hub, where you can catch another train downtown or south to Littleton. Cyclists can access 20 miles of bike trails. The City of Englewood and RTD also operate a free shuttle named “Art.” Art takes riders from CityCenter to Englewood Parkway, where cafes, fast-casual eateries, and other amenities await as well as the Museum of Outdoor Art. The indoor exhibits rotate through in the Englewood Civic Center but you can find about 33 outdoor statues around the Center itself. The museum represents an effort by the city of Englewood to blend art with businesses and landscapes.
Take the kids for a day at Belleview Park. This 36-acre open space contains a petting zoo, playground, multiple pavilions, miniature train, dog park, creek, sports fields, and Pirate’s Cove Water Park—a family water park with rides and slides, including a lazy river and beach area.
If the waterpark isn’t your thing, visit Cherry Creek Reservoir and Cherry Creek Trails which border Englewood in neighboring Centennial.
