Bordered on the north by Wyoming and Nebraska and on the south by the Denver metropolitan area, expansive Weld County claims Greeley as its principal city. Home to half the county’s population, Greeley contributes job opportunities, a leading medical center, and a major state university to the area’s considerable resources.
Weld County is proud of the agricultural heritage shared by most of its communities. Many of its smaller towns still provide amenities for the farms scattered throughout the county. Much of northeastern Weld County remains dryland farming territory and the famous Pawnee National Grasslands. Rural towns dot the landscape—some with populations as low as 25. Those cities located near major highways and closest to Denver have experienced a sweeping transformation in recent decades, where fields have given way to flourishing industrial parks or lovely new subdivisions.
The presence of two institutions of higher education in Weld County has fostered a demand for quality education in public school districts that enjoy an excellent reputation. The University of Northern Colorado (UNC) and Aims Community College are both located in Greeley, although Aims provides a Fort Lupton campus and extension centers to serve an even wider population.
State-of-the-art health care is available throughout the county in modern medical centers, emergency care centers, and family practice clinics. When the need arises for leading-edge diagnostics and advanced treatment, North Colorado Medical Center in Greeley is easily accessible. The Northern Colorado Oncology Center is one of the major cancer treatment facilities in Colorado. Metropolitan Denver is nearby, adding a wealth of additional healthcare facilities and services as well as research centers with worldwide reputations for advanced diagnostics and treatment.
Known for its livability and natural beauty, Weld County offers a wealth of cultural and recreational amenities to area residents. Opportunities for outdoor adventure are plentiful, since most of the county lies with an hour’s drive from the majestic Rocky Mountains. Sports fans enjoy a quick drive to Denver for major professional competition, although the community enthusiastically supports University of Northern Colorado athletics. Those who appreciate the arts will find local venues that showcase regional and national talent in addition to the world-class Denver attractions such as Broadway hits, opera, symphony, musical concerts, and ballet performances.
