Boulder Creek Community is a pet-free, family-friendly cohousing community located in the heart of Boulder, Colorado, the gateway to the Rocky Mountains. With over 300 days of sunshine a year; thousands of acres of preserved open space; hundreds of miles of hiking, rock climbing and biking trails; an active health-conscious culture; and a growing farm-to-table foodie scene, Boulder has something for everyone, at any age.
Our community’s location combines the best of central urban living with a serene, park-like setting. Our 12-acre creekside campus is full of mature trees and lush green spaces. We are bordered by the beautiful Boulder Creek with its accompanying 5.5 mile multi-use pathway for pedestrians and bicyclists. From our homes it is possible to walk, bike or bus to nearly everything. We host parking spots for the city-wide car share eGo, and by the end of the summer we will have a dual 240V electric car charger.
Without crossing a street you can walk or bicycle away from your home, through our complex, and onto the Boulder Creek path; from there you can head downtown to the shops and eateries on Pearl Street Mall, to the public library, or over to the large twice-weekly farmer’s market; the creek path is also connected to more then 300 miles of bikeways (on-street bike lanes and multi-use paths). This includes 58 miles of dedicated car-free pathways (such as the Boulder Creek path) for bikes and pedestrians.
Just across the creek from our campus via a wooden bridge lies Scott Carpenter Park. This large community park contains an open grassy field with a big hill perfect for sledding down in the winter and picnicking on in the summer. There is a playground and Olympic-sized community swimming pool with a water slide, a skate park and a diamond sports field. Overall, Boulder is home to more than 60 urban parks, many of which have playgrounds and other recreational facilities.
