Living in Aurora
What makes Aurora a great place to live?
With more than 6,000 acres of open space, Aurora is home to more than 100 parks, three public reservoirs and seven public golf courses. Morrison Nature Center, a protected habitat for wildlife, connects to the Sand Creek Greenway trail for hiking within the city. Residents enjoy fishing, boating and picnicking at the Aurora and Quincy Reservoirs and strolling along the boardwalk and butterfly garden of Jewell Wetland.
Arts and culture opportunities abound in Aurora. Attend an event at the Aurora Symphony Orchestra at the Fox Arts Center, which holds year-round performances. In the heart of the city’s municipal district, the Aurora History Museum features a permanent exhibit and two rotating galleries.
