I think Willow Park is very nice. Good range of house prices - from $260k to $400k. Greenbelts are great, close to Mountain View Elem. (which is older but good - and is getting new carpet & air conditioning this summer, and has a GREAT staff). I'm moving - want to buy my house? LOL

If I could live anywhere - I'd probably pick McKay Landing. It's got nice houses, near Meridian Elem., clubhouse/pool, etc.

The new Anthem up north will be great too when it's done, and everyone loves the Broadlands and Redleaf of course.

Really all of Broomfield is great, no "bad" neighborhoods really, just different tastes (old house or new? how much do you want to spend?, etc.). And yes - east of sheridan is typically Adams 12 school district & west of Sheridan is Boulder but there are other districts sprinkled in.

Smile Broomfield Area

My husband will be working in the Broomfield area. I am looking for an area to live with trees, views and a good school system, with a short drive (under 30 minutes) to work. Any suggestions?

Thanks.

There is a nice suburb called Broomfield that comes to mind.

City and county of Broomfield. New events center, golf courses... You have a mix of older and newer homes, lots of commerce & office buildings, two different school districts.

Actually 5 school districts, I think: Boulder Valley in the Northwest, Jefferson Co in the southwest, Adams 12 in the east, and Brighton and I think one more in the far northeast. Most students are in Boulder Valley or Adams 12.

LOL I was wondering about Broomfield also. Does it have mountain views and trees? I've never been to Denver but I have heard that one side has mountain views and trees, the other has nothing but grass. Is this true?

Thanks

From anywhere in the Denver area, look west and you see mountains. Look east and you don't.

Great, thanks! That makes sense.
Can you tell that I've never even seen mountains before?

I would recommend checking the school report (http://reportcard.cde.state.co.us/reportcard/CommandHandler.jsp - broken link) for Broomfield before checking for homes in specific school districts.

I live in Willow Run in Broomfield and I'm sitting here right now looking out the window at some very nice mountain views (snow-peaked still!)(although it is a bit cloudy today). Native Coloradans tend to take the mountains for granted (including me!) so it's always funny when someone comes to visit and gasps upon seeing them for the first time. Unfortunately when you see them every single day sometimes you start to look past them. Although there are times when the sun is setting or there is a lot of snow on them and I just stop and think, "Wow!"

That sounds wonderful! I can't wait to see the mountains, and I hope that I don't look past them too often. :c)
