Wheat Ridge


Updated: 12-01-2021 05:13pm

Located 10 minutes northwest of downtown Denver, Wheat Ridge is rich in history, culture, and modern shopping centers and restaurants. The community’s downtown area offers an eclectic mix of local businesses, dining establishments, and shops. The small-town feeling is complimented by an authenticity that only tradition and locally crafted goods can provide.

Wheat Ridge offers more than 20 parks, equestrian trails, and public open space. Cyclists and pedestrians can enjoy the Wheat Ridge Green Belt trail system, with over 300 acres of open space, including Clear Creek Trail, a 6.5-mile paved trail. There is also Bass Lake Boardwalk, a bird watcher’s paradise which is home to more than 100 different migratory bird species who reside in the area’s protected wetlands.

On the eastern edge of Wheat Ridge, you’ll find Lakeside Amusement Park, a vintage amusement park created in the 1900’s. The wooden roller coaster, Ferris wheel and concession

architecture offer visitors a unique entertainment experience, and residents consider Lakeside an institution within the community.

Wheat Ridge’s proximity to downtown Denver provides for short commutes and easy access to Coors Field, Mile High Stadium, Arvada’s historic Olde Town, and RTD’s light rail G line.
