As one of the suburbs of Denver, on the West side of I-25, South of Belleview, North of E470, and East of South Platte Canyon Road, Littleton is connected to the rest of the surrounding metro area by the growing light rail system, making it easy to get anywhere in Denver. Originally, Littleton was a small farming community and part of that history still remains today as the suburb is full of farm land and horse communities.
Leawood, a neighborhood in the central part of Littleton with about 2,500 residents. There are several parks in the area including Weaver, Leawood, & Raccoon Hollar Parks, and tons of walking trails. Also, three reservoirs are near the neighborhood. Near-by shopping and restaurants like Four G’s, Locavore Beer Works, and The Shoppes at Columbine sit in this neighborhood. Leawood is just minutes from the Colorado Front Range and the Rocky Mountains offering more hiking trails, and snow sports. Leawood is just minutes from Aspen Grove Shopping Center as well as Downtown Littleton and its RTD Lightrail station!
