Broomfield Reviews

Broomfield is a great city located halfway between Boulder and Denver. It is a clean city with low crime, highly educated executives, easy freeway access, lots of amenities, and decent real estate appreciation. The west side of Broomfield (80020) is part of Boulder County School District and so I like it much better than the east side which is Adams 12 School District (a for-profit school district). I really love Broomfield for my young kids as there are lots of parks, activities for kids, good shopping, decent chain restaurants, and amazing public services, including the library. Broomfield is the best place to live in the Metro Denver area, in my opinion.

I live about 10 minutes from Broomfield where my son, daughter-in-law and two grandchildren have lived for five years. The town has many community events through the year and the mayor works closely with the children's library. The town has a wide range of ages living here but is especially perfect for young families with children. Their recreation center is lovely and has activities for people of all ages. At holidays, the entire community seems to get involved in decorating their homes and yards. Even the local restaurants have a sense of community, attracting a wide range of ages, gender, and skin color. This town is about halfway between Denver and Boulder making it a perfect location to live.
I have lived in Broomfield, Colorado for eighteen years. This town is booming with culture, diversity, great school programs and excelling parks and recreation. I would like to see the town open more eras for open space! Aside from that I highly enjoy Broomfield Colorado.
