Located an equal distance from Fort Collins and the Colorado capital of Denver, Firestone is a rapidly growing community that's managing to stay true to its rural roots while simultaneously flourishing, a quality that's bound to appeal to people looking for local homes for rent.
Things Firestone Renters Should Know
Along with the neighboring communities of Dacono and Frederick, Firestone makes up the Carbon Valley Recreation District, which is governed by a seven-person board of directors.
The St. Vrain Valley School District serves most of Firestone, while residents in the northeast sector of the town fall into the Weld County School District RE-1.
Resources for Residents
Firestone's official website offers a wealth of information about town services, features of the community and economic development. There's even a New Resident Information page that lists the contact details and websites of local schools, utilities companies, emergency services and the like. The town also has a presence on Facebook, Twitter, Pinterest and YouTube.
Firestone has 15 parks and 5 miles of trails that boast picnic areas, sports fields and courts, playgrounds and, in the case of Harney Park, a climbing rock. Avid golfers are also in luck, as the Saddleback Golf Course is situated right in town - and offers breathtaking views of the Rocky Mountains to boot. Prospective renters with families will particularly appreciate the range of community events held within Firestone each year, from the 4th at Firestone celebration in the summer to the Carbon Valley Holiday Festival in the winter.
