My Family Is Relocating To Co And Larkspur Is One Of Our Choices!! We Found The Acreage And It Is 12 Miles To Work!!! This Doesn't Mean We Wouldn't Consider Other Areas. If Anyone Knows Anything About Larkspur, Please Share. We Have 2 Babies And 4 Huskies And Need A Great Community!!!

Thanks

Kate

Kate: Larkspur is rural, no town there that I know of. Lots of horse owners, small ranches and well-dispersed homes there. Rolling country, not much nearby, great if you like open space. Hopefully you're far enough off I-25 that you won't get highway noise. A decent location for driving to both Colorado Springs or Denver metro area. The annual Rennaissance Festival is located there each summer for about 6 weeks, lots of fun.

Larkspur is a cool rural town between Monument & Castle Rock. Shop either (probably CR) place, good Dougco schools...sounds like a winner.

I think Larkspur is a great area! You are out there in the Country, but now that Monument is continuing to grow, you are not too far off from a grocery store and other things. I would love to live up there, beautiful! I think it may even be a great place investment wise aswell. bashep

Hey Kuda

There is a small community in Larkspur, small deli, gas station, a couple real estates, one insurance company and storage facility, but, up the road about 7 miles in Palmer Lake, you might check out this community, along with Monument, which borders each other....Monument is one beautiful area with lots of pine trees and not far from I-25, and about 20 miles to Colorado Springs from there...

I live in Larkspur and love it! Most people only know Larkspur from the Renaissance Festival or stopping in the town for gas on their way up form Colorado Springs. Neither of these first impressions will leave a very favorable opinion of the area.

The Perry Park and Sage Port subdivisions offer very nice homes on one acre lots with towering pine trees. Perry Park is built around the Perry Park Country Club. Sage Port is a little closer to I-25 (no highway noise) and near Bear Dance Golf Course.

Perry Park East (5 acre lots) and Sterling Pointe (2.3 acre lots) are adjacent to Sage Port, but you pay a premium for the land, but it is worth it.

If you live in any of these areas you will probably drive to Castle Rock for most of your amenities. It is about 10 minutes from most of these areas. Perry Park is about 20 minutes.

Check out Moderator cut (broken link) for additional Larkspur information.

Do they still do the Renaissance Festival there? Someone told me that it moved elsewhere. The last time I went was many years back (probably high school). I'd like to take my kids to see it.

Default Renaissance Festival

Yes, there was a Renaissance Festival at Larkspur this past summer, and I recall reading somewhere that the property owner and the festival operator had agreed on terms to hold it there for a few more years.

Was a lot of fun too.

That's good to hear. I'll plan on taking the kids this next summer. I wonder if they still do the "Dunk a Wench" and have the mutton (smoke turkey legs).
