Northglenn, Colo., is composed of small, close-knit neighborhoods, parks and trails, small businesses and other features that make it perfect for families looking for homes for rent in areas with a slower pace. That said, the state capital of Denver is just 15 minutes south of the city, so residents are just a quick drive away from big-city culture, shopping and attractions.
The D.L. Parsons Theatre at the Northglenn Recreation Center presents performances, films and community shows, and also offers youth dance and acting classes. In the summer, the theater also hosts the weekly Summer Concert Series on days with inclement weather, but if the sun is out, you can expect the event to be held at the nearby E.B. Rains Jr. Memorial Park. In addition to hosting the Summer Concert Series, Art on Parade exhibit and July 4th Family Festival, the 28-acre park features playgrounds, basketball courts, sports fields and a lake, making it a recreational hub of the community.
