The Avenues Crofton Park is proud to be located along Colorado’s picturesque Front Range. Not only do our residents enjoy stunning mountain views and easy access to parks, trails and other recreational destinations, they get to live in the vibrant, social city of Broomfield. Located 20 miles outside of Denver, the City of Broomfield has an active cultural council committed to providing residents with free entertainment year-round. Now that the weather is warm, we encourage you take advantage of the many events happening in our city. Here are our top five fun things to do in Broomfield this summer:
1. Flatiron Crossing Summer Nights Concert Series

The concerts begin at 7 p.m. and are held rain or shine. During the event of inclement weather, the concerts will be held inside the auditorium.
3. Broomfield Depot Museum Speaker Series
Established in 1909, Broomfield was originally a 160-person town built along the Colorado & Southern Railway. Though the city has grown exponentially since its founding, the Broomfield Depot Museum strives to preserve and maintain Broomfield’s history.
