Situated 40 miles northwest of Denver, Keenesburg is a rural, plains town in Weld County. In 2010 the population was 1127.
The town was named for Les Keene, a settler of the area. It’s most known for its large animal sanctuary, which rescues big game from all over the world.
Wild Animal Sanctuary – 720 acre refuge for hundreds of lions, tigers, bears, wolves and large carnivores. An 1.5 mile elevated walkway overlooks the animals.
