Wray, Colorado...

Go Community, Life Abundant.

 

Wray, established more than 100 years ago, is a survival city of the High Plains. Wray sits in a scenic valley beside the banks of the Republican River just 13 miles from the point where Colorado, Kansas, and Nebraska meet. A long range of grassy sand hills stretch north and south of the city. Picturesque buttes, rocks, cliffs, and canyons also skirt the city to the south.

 

Wray is the county seat of Yuma County. Found along the main line of the Burlington Northern/Santa Fe Railroad and the intersection of State Highways 385 and 34, Wray has a highly rated airport with a new runway and all paved streets with snow removal. Wray enjoys excellent fire and police protection and ambulance service to a hospital facility built in 1995. There are two highly rated nursing home facilities serving Wray, a recreational and rehabilitation center, a licensed childcare center, a newly renovated swimming pool, public tennis courts completed in 2005, and an exercise path. Wray has local media coverage through newspaper, radio, and cable and satellite TV access. Local sales tax stays around two percent, and new growth continues in the business community as well as in residential areas.
