My husband and I have been doing some exploring. We just got to town about 10 days ago and are in a rental in Springs Ranch for now. My husband got a job at Schriever and we will be looking to buy a home here in Springs within the next year. We drove through a neighborhood that we LOVED yesterday, St. Andrews that borders Palmer Park on the NW side. The only concern I have is that the schools there seem to be pretty poorly rated for the d11. I believe the High School is Wesson. Are there any similar neighborhoods bordering the park in a different school zone? I would love nothing more that to have the park as my backyard.

Also if there are any other neighborhoods that back up to a similar park/public land in the 250-375k range please let me know!

We are absolutely loving Colorado so far, so glad to be here!

I work in D11 and I would advise not to go to Wasson. The school has just had too much drama and turmoil in recent years. However, schools are all choice here, and so if a little commute is not an issue, your kids can go to school wherever you want no matter where you live. You might like to look over near Garden of the Gods, which would be Coronado High School, a good school.

Thank you for your advice. Do you know the names of any specific neighborhoods in that Coronado are so that I might google them? Thanks again

Try the local ppar.com website, and used their map-based search, which is really cool.

Coronado HS is over on Fillmore Street near Mesa Rd, so draw a search box around that area and see what pops up, both sales or rentals.

I'm in Old Farm, we have a nice park here, we are very close to Palmer Park and anything else you could want. We LOVE our neighborhood! The HS is Doherty.
