We've found online a built community in Castle Rock called "The Meadows". We're curious to get feedback about it's general vibe. Are people friendly like the website protrays.


We have experienced with built communities, people generally keep to themselves because of the close proximity of the homes.

Is the traffic in Castle Rock good compared to California?

What's the community feel in Castle Rock?

thanks!

Hey there-

Castle Rock is a neat town about 15-20 minutes south of Denver. It has grown alot in the last five years. The traffic is nothing compared to California. Where will you be commuting to? Denver? Colorado Springs? That will help us answer your questions aswell. SHEP

We use to live there. Sold the house we had built earlier this year (we relocated to Southern Cal and are now moving to Montana). When we had our house built (The Harris subdivision...Lennar was our Builder) there was about 2500 homes. My understanding at full buildout the Meadows will have 10,000 homes.

What would you like to know?

I read your post again. The lot we had was about 5,000 sq feet. The Meadows is NOT like California. The lots are small but the whole idea of the development is to get people out. There are pocket playgrounds, a pool at the Grange, walking trails everywhere. Its not a hide in your backyard type of place.

Default The Meadows

We are in the process of having a house built in the Meadows right now in the Watercolor section. We love the idea of the Grange and getting out and meeting our new neighbors. It is close to Denver, yet far enough from the city that you feel you are in a small town. Now just to sell our house here in Florida and get a job there so we can get out of here!

Do you have children in school? They have a brand new high school and an elementary school is just a couple of years old.

Also, they do summer concerts at Butterfield Park. As well as an Easter Egg hunt (with Easter Bunny), Fall Festival, Father Christmas (at the Grange). The Fall Festival has hayrides.

We have an 11 year old son who started middle school here in Florida, but will have to go back to elementary there since their system works differently. That may actually be beneficial though since he would see the same kids in class all day long and be able to make friends more quickly than if he had to go from class to class all day and not have a chance to talk to anyone very long in middle school. He is really looking forward to the move believe it or not. I was shocked since he has so many friends he will be leaving behind.

We were looking at real estate in the Meadows this past weekend. It's a great community- kids selling lemonade at the corner, people waving to you as you drive by. Everyone seemed very pleasant. The lots are not huge; over 6000-7000 sq ft is hard to find. It seems like a wonderful place, though.
