The setting is unforgettable: picturesque hills, buff-colored rimrock, and sweeping meadows set against the rugged Rocky Mountains. A small-town ambiance permeates the Meadows, where charming neighborhoods feature Colorado-contemporary homes and townhomes highlighted by covered front porches, stone accents, Craftsman-style detailing, and maintenance-free living.

At the Meadows, the imagined ideal of the traditional neighborhood comes vividly alive. The streets are clean and quiet and the neighbors welcoming, while children receive a quality education at good schools and play in safe, carefully manicured playgrounds, athletic fields, parks, and community open space.

Incorporated into the Meadows’ community-wide trail system are interpretive learning stations created in conjunction with the Denver Museum of Nature and Science. Meanwhile, the Grange Cultural Arts Center, a popular gathering spot, offers classes in the arts plus two outdoor swimming pools.

Paintbrush Park boasts two baseball diamonds. Horseshoe pits and volleyball courts are also available.

Reflective of the irresistible lure of the Old West, romantically named neighborhoods – Fuller Bluff, Morgan’s Run, Feathergrass, Briscoe Ranch, Morningview, Watercolor, and Weathervane – offer distinctive residences designed to accommodate a range of lifestyles from new families to empty nesters.

Despite the bucolic setting, shopping, restaurants, and business parks abound nearby. Situated on the west side of I-25 at Meadows Parkway exit, directly opposite historic downtown Castle Rock, the Meadows is just 16 miles south of the Denver Tech Center and 38 miles north of Colorado Springs.

Area golfers relish the lush fairways, towering buttes, and panoramic Front Range views offered by the Red Hawk Ridge Golf Course, whose challenging, 6942-yard layout was designed by Jim Engh. Meanwhile, the Outlets at Castle Rock draws avid shoppers and bargain hunters from near and far.
