Welcome to Cheyenne

Welcome to Cheyenne

On behalf of the Governing Body and the residents of the City, I would like to welcome you to a virtual tour of Cheyenne, Wyoming.

From its rough and tumble beginnings in 1867, when the population consisted of 600 construction workers, entrepreneurs and camp followers of “dubious character and rowdy habit,” Cheyenne has grown to almost 60,000 residents of diversity. And, yes, we still have residents of “rowdy habit,” however, I believe you will find the majority of Cheyennites to be friendly, welcoming, and helpful.

Cheyenne has a multitude of cultural and recreational opportunities. Our Civic Center hosts a theater season, numerous productions and the Cheyenne Symphony Orchestra. The downtown’s renovated Union Pacific Depot houses offices, a restaurant, and a transportation museum. During the summer months, the Depot Plaza is the location for concerts, the Farmer’s Market, pancake breakfasts, and more. Our parks system is the envy of many similarly sized communities. The Cheyenne-Kiwanis Community House in Lions Park is the site for conferences, reunions, and many other activities. The “Beaches of Cheyenne” are located along Sloan’s lake where one can fish, walk, bike, and rent canoes or paddle boats. Two Lions Park features are the Children’s Spray Park and the Brimmer Amphitheater.
