It is known for its excellent public schools being rated by Newsweek in the top 6% of the United States' school districts based on how hard school staffs work to challenge students with advanced placement college level courses and tests.
At an elevation of 7,200 feet, surrounded by pine forests, its climate offers relief from the hot summers, with temperatures ranging from the high 70's to the low 80's; and winters are surprisingly mild, in the mid-40's to 50 degrees. Well established as one of Colorado's hidden treasures, the Evergreen community offers an array of parks, art galleries, theatre, restaurants, entertainment, and more. Evergreen Lake and Elk Meadow Park are Evergreen's crown jewels. Evergreen Lake provides all-season recreational activities such as boating, fishing, birding, ice-skating, art shows and concerts. Elk Meadow Park provides miles of trails for hiking, biking, snowshoeing, cross country skiing and horseback riding and is the home of large herds of elk and mule deer.
