Montbello is located in the northeastern section of Denver county and began as a suburban-style development. Today you'll find a mix of single family homes and new construction. Montbello also boasts easy access to the Rocky Mountain Arsenal Complex, a National Wildlife Refuge, which offers over 15,000 acres of prairie, wetland, and woodland habitat.
There are several schools in Montbello, including Montbello High School, six elementary schools, one K-8, and a middle school. Many popular restaurants and shops are just a short drive away in Northfield and public transportation on the light rail is easily accessible.
