As one of Denver’s newest cities, Centennial is a great area that provides the perks of city living and the enjoyments of suburban life in beautiful neighborhoods. Bordered by Orchard Road to the North, Broadway to the West, County Line Road to the South and I 25 to the East, Centennial also includes a few neighborhoods east of I 25. Real estate in Centennial is scattered between 500 acres of public parks and over 40 acres of hiking and biking trails. Centennial has such an abundance of shopping and dining experiences – from independent local businesses to popular national chains at The Streets of South Glenn, and Centennial Promenade. The Streets of South Glenn, a redeveloped, urban version of the old South Glenn Mall, provides tons of local sidewalk cafes and bistros as well as nightlife entertainment with several local bars, a large movie theater and Canvas and Cocktails. The Centennial Promenade, located across from the Park Meadows Mall off of County Line Road, has nearly fifty specialty stores and restaurants to meet anyone’s taste.
Please meet Mary Cullen and her son that live in the area:
- How did you choose your neighborhood? My neighborhood chose me by having a great elementary school, Sandburg Center for Science. Sandburg is a great school with solid academics, good teachers, an excellent recycling program, and superb before and after care. Plus we have family nearby.
- What is your favorite feature of your location? The personal feature would be family nearby, a sister a mile east and parents a mile west. Perfect! We also love the parks, outdoor pools in summer, South Suburban Recreation, proximity to C-470 and I-25, large lots, open space–there is so much to love.
- How long have you lived in the area? Two years.
- Where is your favorite local spot? The Streets at South Glenn, which has something for everyone. Places to eat from Whole Foods to Ivy and everything in between, plus the movie theater and shops–Kismet is my favorite. And we can walk to Tony’s Market and grab coffee, treats, lunch, or a bottle of wine.
- Use one word to describe your neighborhood. Perfect!
- Is there anything else you wish to share about your neighborhood? Moving from central Denver, I thought there were not brick houses and variety in homes in the suburbs. There are some great houses!
