Arvada is a beautiful first-ring suburb of Denver, the Mile High City. Arvada retains its small-town feel even with its estimated population of 115,368. Established in 1870, Arvada enjoys a rich history, quiet tree-lined neighborhoods, and a robust mix of business. Its strong civic leadership balances quality of life with an understanding and support of business and economic development. The City has been recognized at the state and national level for its business retention program. The Arvada Economic Development Association (AEDA) is the first internationally accredited economic development organization in the State of Colorado.
Arvada possesses three proximate interstate highways providing easy access to the larger metropolitan region and Denver International Airport. An extraordinary trail system links with Denver trails on the east and the foothills of the Rocky Mountains to the west, punctuated with thousands of acres of parks and open spaces along with a low crime rate.
