A bedroom community of Greeley, Evans' culture is strongly tied to its more-developed metropolitan neighbor. Evans forms the northwestern corner of an equilateral triangle with Boulder and Denver. The capital city's pulse is just 25 minutes away, while a similar drive west puts residents in beautiful Rocky Mountain National Park.
In 2004, Evans received the Gold Medal for Excellence in Park and Recreation Management, the highest honor of this type and one that is considered the Oscar of parks and recreation. The supporting cast? City Park features a playground, pavilion, horseshoe pits, softball arena and lots of shade for picnics; Riverside Park contains a seven-acre fishing lake with over two miles of scenic trails, ball fields and open lands; and Village Park offers tennis and basketball. Prairie View Park boasts soccer fields and a skateboard park.
If time permits, check out the Evans Historical Museum, located on Golden Street next to the Evans Chamber of Commerce. Here volunteers cheerfully share old railroad stories and artifacts from Evans' rich past.
Evans also supports six motels and numerous restaurants. Fast food and sit-down eateries line 37th and 23rd Streets. Cuisine options include a Cajun-style steakhouse, Mexican and fast food to satisfy hungry travelers.
