About Erie

Erie is situated in both Boulder and Weld counties. It is just west of I-25 and offers easy access to I-70 and Denver International Airport. A former coal town, Erie was once the third-largest town in the county after the railroad spur connected Denver to Cheyenne.  

With majestic mountain views and a progressive civic vision, Erie provides a genuine small-town feel with a strong sense of community and neighbors who care. Not surprisingly growing families, young professionals, outdoor enthusiasts, and active adults are drawn to the city’s scenic location, hiking trails, championship golf course, recreational activities and more than 300 days of sunshine per year. 

Erie also boasts an award-winning 63,000-square foot Community Center and a 20,000-square foot Community Library. Residents can rest assured knowing that Erie is dedicated to maintaining a well-balanced community with various housing, educational, employment, recreational, and shopping activities.
