A comprehensive photo tour of Lone Tree, a small but prominent and upscale suburb in Douglas County, on the far south end of the Denver metro area. I show single-family and multi-family residential areas, retail/entertainment (including the Vistas at Park Meadows development), and commercial areas, all taken in or right around the borders of Lone Tree. A lot of people here ask about this place so this may be helpful in giving people an idea.

Vegas, another great job, reps to ya bud.

IIRC, Park Meadows Mall and Lone Tree are served by one or more stops at the south end of the E & F lines of the Light Rail System.

That's right-- the County Line and Lincoln stations. At the Lincoln station, which is currently the end of the line, there are even a few transit-oriented apartment developments which I showed towards the end. As of right now, not much within walking distance of that area, but they may change in the future if the economy picks up and development continues.

Also, the grassland open space shown was the Bluffs Regional Park.

Fantastic pics. Unfortunately, Lone Tree looks like Irvine, Valencia or Woodland Hills in California to me. All outer suburbs. The cleanliness of these kinds of communities always seems appealing for a short time, but then the impact they have on their surroundings starts to really set in. Mind you, I'm only going off of the photos and what I've read.
