The City of Wheat Ridge is a mature, full-service city with a strong sense of community and history. It began as a successful wheat-growing area in 1862.

Today, its tree-lined streets combined with its convenient location adjacent to I-70 between downtown Denver and the mountains make Wheat Ridge a desirable place to live and do business.

The City of Wheat Ridge values its business community and promotes business development by working to attract new businesses, and by helping existing business thrive and grow.

The value of open space and recreational opportunities is a priority for the city. Wheat Ridge is involved in ongoing planning and commitment for city trail interconnections with an extensive regional walking and cycling trail system. Overall, there are over 140 acres of developed parks and over 25 acres of open space in Wheat Ridge.

The City of Wheat Ridge's major employers are: Lutheran Medical Center, Rocky Mountain Bottle Company, and UTI Star Guide Corp.
