In 1950 only 1,686 residents lived in the quiet rural town of Westminster. Large apple and cherry orchards covered the land and people from the Denver metropolitan area visited each spring to enjoy the apple blossoms. More than five decades later, Westminster has been transformed into a thriving bedroom community close to major business centers, educational facilities and other amenities residing in Denver and Adams County.
More than 106,000 Westminster residents enjoy 50 developed parks with playground facilities and courts, state-of-the-art recreational centers, 2,000 acres of open space and more than 40 miles of multi-purpose outdoor trails. More than 229 schools in three school districts—Adams County 50, Adams County 12 and Jefferson County—serve Westminster students. The University of Colorado at Boulder and the University of Colorado at Denver are each 20 miles away.
Three neighborhood parks, Mayham Park, DeSpain Park and Madison Park, were named for historic founding families. In fact, Westminster is grounded in its historical identity.
