There are hospitals all over. The Villa Cr one is probably closer but it doesn't make much difference really. Any of the neighborhoods are fine.

FWIW, the southeast side of town loves their fireworks. I had a fairly elevated vantage point that I was waiting to see the Memorial Park display from. While waiting, through the show, and for a good 30 minutes afterwards, there was a constant barrage of high flying retail morters on the horizon of this section of the city.

Hi there, my family and I recently got orders to Peterson AFB and we're seriously considering a home in the Sands Creek development specifically on Vernal Circle (literally borders Airport Rd). I know this is considered SE but I'm hoping it's one of the good areas. Any help would be GREATLY appreciated!

Vernal Circle is in a group of newer homes that have been built over the last 15+ years. For the SE side, it is a better neighborhood to be in and is physically isolated from many other neighborhoods by the two forks of Sand Creek. However, knowing that, I'd ask some very direct questions about 100 flood plain and make sure your insurance is adequate to cover any problems with flooding or sewer, even if it takes an additional rider.

Two of the rougher areas of SE Cos are isolated areas of Pikes Peak Park and Deerfield Hills. You are somewhat removed from those. However, your kids will be attending some of the same schools as some of the kids form those areas. Be vigilant about your kids relationships and school activities and you'll be fine.

TCHP, thank you very much for the info, did not know it had a flood risk but nice to know it's more isolated. We have an elementary aged child and we're trying to get him into the James Irwin schools which are rated really highly I believe. We're coming from Japan though which is extremely safe so I think you're right that managing their friends will be a very good idea.
