Hi everyone,
I had another question. This time for anyone who actually lives in Lowry. How do you like the neighborhood? What is the community feel like? Are there a lot of families or any singles? I found a few threads that go in depth about stapleton but not so much with lowry.
Thank you in advance for answering!

There are some folks on this board who moved from Lowry to Stapleton, I will let them answer why but the general feeling most people seem to get from the place is older, dual income no kids.

Very small lots mostly without alleys.

From my experience riding through there frequently during the warmer months it is like a ghost town, virtually nobody is outside. This contrasts with Stapelton where you frequently see people gathering and chatting outside during the warmer months.

Default My two cents. . .

First, I must say that I don't actually live in Lowry -- it's a bit out of our price range! But, I do work in Lowry and have several friends who live there.

From what I've seen, it seems to be a good mix of folks. I bring my kids to the parks there and there are generally a lot of parents/nannies with little ones, esp when it's warm. I've also been to some neighborhood events at Crescent Park -- again, a good mix of folks. My friends also host a well attended block party each year complete with a band and a bike parade. I would move there in a heartbeat. I love the town center and the location within the Denver area. The downside for us (aside from the price) is the lot sizes. VERY small -- and we have two big dogs. I see a lot of people walking their dogs, so I know it's possible to have them in Lowry, but for us it just wasn't something we could consider.

When comparing Lowry to Stapleton, I guess I'd consider it to be a bit more of an affluent area. There are more older folks there. It may be because Lowry is adjacent to a well established, very nice neighborhood near 6th Ave (Mayfair/Montclair) and people feel comfortable or connected to the Lowry area, more so than Stapleton? I don't know -- just a theory. :-)

I live in Stapleton but regularly go down to Lowry. The rumor is that Lowry is more conservative and less social than Stapleton, but I have no proof of that. It's in Denver and the entire city is fairly liberal. I do notice that you don't see as many people out and about in Lowry, other than the town center. Parts of it seem a bit more suburban than Stapleton - some houses with front-loading garages, which aren't allowed in Stapleton. Overall it seems like a nice place and very walkable.
