Evergreen, Colorado and the associated communities that make up Evergreen, including El Rancho and Bergen Park to the north, Marshdale to the south and Kittredge to the East,  are cradled in the Rocky Mountains at about 7,000 feet elevation and just 30 miles west of Denver along the historic Lariat Loop. Evergreen is a place where city and mountain living come together – to a place where elk and buffalo roam. The best things in life thrive in this quaint mountain locale – friendly people, beautiful mountain vistas, thick pine forests, wildlife, an abundance of recreational, social and business opportunities, and housing. While the area offers a unique mountain lifestyle, the amenities and services of nearby metropolitan Denver are close by.

Evergreen encompasses about 130 square miles of pine and aspen-laden hills. It sprawls from the flanks of 14,260-foot Mount Evans on the west, to the edge of the high plains on the east; from its sister communities of Conifer and Aspen Park on the south, to Genesee and Lookout Mountain on the north. About 41,000 people call Evergreen home. Residents are artists, engineers, scientists, carpenters, retailers, homemakers and heads of corporations. Many work in nearby Denver and escape home to the high country at the end of what may have been an urban hectic day; many residents both live and work in the mountain community. In Evergreen, purchasing a quality home, supporting quality schools and paying taxes for quality government often costs less than in metropolitan areas on either coast. Other residents have chosen Evergreen because of its proximity to Denver. They enjoy all the big city has to offer – international museum exhibits, national sports competitions, world-class restaurants – but prefer to live in this tranquil mountain community. If Evergreen’s lifestyle appeals to you, come and visit us. Be assured, Evergreen will welcome you.
