My wife and I are considering retiring in the Denver area but can not afford a conventional house. We are thinking of buying a pristine used double wide in a park which allows only retirees. I would appreciate recommendations for parks which are scenic, well kept and offer both amenities and social opportunities.
I would also appreciate your thoughts on the positives/negatives to this approach.

My husband's cousin and his wife recently bought in Holiday Hills, which is in Federal Heights, northwest of downtown Denver. They're very happy there as they moved down from a double-wide at altitude which was problematic for their health issues. They're near to hospitals here. Most of the people seem to be retirees though cousin said there are a few younger people living with grandparents etc.

Another 55+ mobile home community is Wolhurst, in Littleton, southwest of Denver. This one is in a more rural setting but close to Light Rail. Lots of amenities, hospital close by, as is shopping. This park is probably more scenic and has an interesting history.

Wolhurst Community

I don't know the pros and cons of your plan, perhaps someone else can give you some insight. Good luck!

This link should give you a list of 12 age-restricted MHP's within 40 miles of Denver.

Wolhurst is probably the most scenic. Holiday Hills seemed well kept from the times I have visited relatives who lived there.
