Once a small rural community, Greenwood Village now boasts two business parks. But when companies close for the day, the town quiets down and shrinks to about a third of its daytime population.

Locals have a choice of distinctive abodes. Homes in Greenwood range from starter condos and townhomes to $7 million masterpieces with panoramic mountain views from every room. Year-round recreation activities, a bustling arts center and special events like Greenwood Village Day and a fishing derby bring residents together.
