show info

When it comes to Colorado, people tend to think of ski resorts. But you can also find pleasant, homey suburban areas in the state, and Centennial is just such a place. This Denver/Aurora metro area suburb makes a great place to raise a family close to the mountains and Western elements that characterize the region. But, instead of living smack dab in the middle of a tourist town that is alternately deserted and jam-packed, Centennial residents enjoy life at a steady pace.

With amenities like a fireplace surrounded by sheltered areas, this park may actually inspire Centennial residents to enjoy the outdoors during winter.
