Nestled on the eastern slopes of the scenic Columbine Valley north of Chatfield State Park and Reservoir, Littleton enjoys far more open space than typical metro-area suburban environments, much of it, including South Platte Park, Cooley Lake, Hudson Gardens, and Centennial Golf and Tennis Club, stretched along the river banks.
Favored pastimes at Chatfield are boating, cookouts, hot-air ballooning, hiking, and nature walks. Next door, the Denver Botanic Gardens nature preserve encompasses picturesque grasslands, ponds, and strands of cottonwoods along Deer Creek. Meanwhile, non-profit Hudson Gardens features elaborate recreations of native Colorado ecosystems.
Residents and visitors alike can’t seem to get enough of downtown Littleton’s charming shops, bistros, galleries, eateries, spas, and wellness studios. An impressive line up of special events includes the Farmer’s Market (weekly), Sidewalk Sale and Bazaar (monthly). Littleton is close to Denver with a small town feel and the old town offers walking to adorable boutiques and good restaurants.
