Can anyone tell me about the Spring Creek neighborhood area? The neighborhood looks nice and cute, but I don't know anything about that area of CO Springs. My husband has orders to Ft Carson and we found a house we like in the neighborhood, but we haven't been out there and want to know if it's an ok area. Thanks!!

It's right in between S Union Blvd and S Circle Dr, south of E Fountain Blvd and JUST north of Monterey Rd.

Ah, I know the ones you're talking about - there's a little gazebo and cute little new homes. I would suggest that the little neighborhood itself is fine, but the larger area it is surrounded by, particularly that to its east, is not considered that great. At one time Monterey and Carmel was noted for gang activity. Prospect Lake to its north has also been questionable at times, but seems to be mostly fine recently. Not that the Springs has ever been anything like ghetto or LA gang wars. I do think perhaps that area is improving a little in recent years, and there are certainly some charming features like the Prospect Lake and Memorial Park nearby. If you think you'll be having kids in the schools, Spring Creek is at the northern edge of Harrison District 2, the least-favored district in the entire region. I'd suggest that if you continue to look in that general area, if you can get north of Fountain and West of Hancock like in the Shooks Run Neighborhood long term prospects may be better. But if you are not worried about kids in schools and just looking for a starting place, I wouldn't entirely rule out the Spring Creek area as a starting rental - but I wouldn't commit myself there for longer than a year until you can get in and see what you really think.

I might also suggest you look for anything West of highway 115 down near Fort Carson - that would be a very favorable area. I might also suggest you check into Widefield, Security, and Fountain.
