We're moving to Parker this summer (only choice of city) and I'm trying to find out what neighborhoods offer great schools, beautiful homes with large lots, and quick access to 470 (yeah, I know the tolls are expensive!) The Timbers seems too far from 470 and I don't like that Pradera has few trees---any ideas??

Across Parker Rd from Pradera is The Pinery. The name is appropriate and the cost will probably be similar to Pradera(well, the custom parts I guess, it's been a while). There are some larger lots in The Pinery, but maybe smaller overall than Pradera

I'll second The Pinery.

You can also check out the neighborhoods in the area on the east side of Parker Road between Main Street and Hilltop Road. The area is hilly with many mountain views, the homes are nice, and it's just old enough to have large trees. Most of the newer areas of Parker are areas in which the trees are very young so it'll be a while before they grow bigger.

The Pinery without a doubt. Most the homes were built between 70 and 80. A lot of oil people moved in and built many of those homes there. They have since moved out but all the homes I have seen have been updated inside and all have great scenery, just has a relaxed feel to it. No cookie cutter houses or being so close to your neighbour you can see them eat breakfast in the morning.
