"A mix of housing, community college campus, and professional buildings."

Centretech is an area that has some housing, is home to the main campus of Community College of Aurora, and is also the grounds for Raytheon, a defense contractor for the U.S. Both the campus and Raytheon add charm to the area with wide fields of green grass and a laid back feel. Other than the main arteries, the roads here are wide and some gently curve through the area. Centre Hills Golf Course borders South Airport Blvd. on the east.

For the kids and those interested in history there is the DeLaney Farm Park which is home to the Gully Homestead House, the DeLaney Round Barn, and and the Coal Creek Shoolhouse. This area was homesteaded in the 1870s by Bridget and John Delaney, two Irish immigrants. The house is the oldest standing house in Aurora and the round barn is the only example of a round barn left in the state of Colorado. Throughout the year there are various things to do at the park such as experience how it was to cook on an open fire, walk along the open trails, observe a honey bee habitat, and take other various classes dealing with history, living in the 1800s, and food preservation. It is a place for the whole family to learn and enjoy.

North Chambers road, East 6th Avenue, South Airport Blvd., and Alameda Avenue are all major roads with lots of traffic at peak times, although fine throughout the rest of the day. The roads within the neighborhood are less congested and easy to get through.

Although there isn't much shopping within the traditional borders, there are numerous places to shop and eat all around. The Aurora Mall is just down the street and numerous restaurants are just west of the neighborhood. It's a nice little section of an otherwise busy area.
