The city of Greeley (named for famous city editor Horace Greeley) is both large and small at the same time. This dichotomy is brought about by the fact that "G-Town" (as it is affectionately called) is a leading city of the Large Front Range Urban Corridor that leads to Denver. This city of 93,000 residents is positioned north East of Denver along Highway 85.
The city of Greeley is approximately 30 square miles. Evans and Garden City borders it to the south. Locals often erroneously refer to the three cities collectively as "Greeley". The city is predominantly positioned east to west with Highway-34 running through it.
The sunset side of the city, known as West Greeley starts at 47th Ave., and ends at Country Road 17. There are quite a few lovely neighborhoods in West Greeley with single-family homes currently on the market. Neighborhoods on the West Side such as Allison Farms, Cedarwoods Subdivision, West Point, Pine Ridge Estates and Poudre River Ranch are well-established within the community.
Covington Knolls contains some of the most spacious homes in all of Greeley. This upscale gated community has quite a few elegant mansions. Overall, there are 30 constituent neighborhoods in town to choose from when selecting a place to live. Although Greeley is considered a larger medium-sized city, many of its residents consider it just the right fit for their lifestyle.
