If large leafy trees on expansive lots is what you are looking for, Applewood is the neighborhood for you. Surrounded by three cities: Golden, Lakewood and Wheat Ridge, and tucked away at the bottom of the foothills, Applewood was founded over 140 years ago by farmers attracted to its fertile soil. A rural feeling remains in this neighborhood with sloping hills, mature trees, large lots, and homes that are unique rather than suburban-tract style. Families predominate in this peaceful neighborhood as Applewood residents have easy access to shopping at the Colorado Mills Mall,
and recreational amenities at Red Rocks Amphitheater
, which hosts music events and offers a variety of hiking trails. Several golf courses and the popular walking/biking trails at Crown Hill Park are also a short drive away, as is I-70 and access to the Rocky Mountains, which make Applewood an ideal location for families wanting to experience all that Colorado has to offer.
