The area encompasses two public golf courses, the Greeley Country Club, the Greeley FunPlex and its disc golf course, sports fields, multi-trails and bike lanes, a bronze sculptures path and open vistas of the glorious mountain ranges. This is the place to meet friends, eat great meals, take a bike ride and catch gorgeous sunsets day after day.
Central Greeley has the highest concentration of single-family residences, parks and shopping centers of a more suburban nature. The area includes a variety of housing options including cottages, single story ranches, split levels and apartments. The style is an eclectic mix of architecture dating from the 1950’s to the present. Many of the residents have lived in their homes for decades, a testimony to the stability and appeal of the area. Quiet and convenient, there’s something for everyone.
The University District area has a close connection to UNC because the six neighborhoods surrounding it have developed and grown right along with the University. While each neighborhood has its own vibe, all of them are home to many UNC faculty, staff and students. From grand historic mansions, to eclectic bungalows, to beautiful Tudor revivals and ranch homes, the University District is filled with unique architecture, mature trees and established gardens. In addition, the University District has many restaurants, galleries, boutiques, quaint shopping areas and Greeley’s largest hospital – North Colorado Medical Center.

Modest housing interspersed with art studios and manufacturing businesses make this area diverse and interesting.
