Looking for a complete community experience for your family? A place where nature and space and quiet come together? A nurturing environment for your children and spouse whether you already live in Denver or are a relocation buyer.
Give yourself a gift and take a look at Highlands Ranch Metro District. The Highlands Ranch Community Association (HRCA) is a nationally award-winning nonprofit organization for over 29,300 home owners in Highlands Ranch. With four state-of-the art recreation facilities, architectural control and covenant enforcement, youth and adult fitness programs and educational opportunities, and the Backcountry Wilderness Area, HRCA offers your family a potpourri of activities, classes, sports, and of course, the soothing backdrop of nature and wildlife.
According to the Highlands Ranch website, “The HRCA strives to build the lifestyle that you want to live so that Highlands Ranch will continue to be a great place to live, work, and play.”
Imagine your home near one of Highland Ranch’s 23 parks, 70 miles of trails, and more than 2000 acres of open space areas. That’s not all. There are two skate parks, an outdoor inline hockey rink, eight lighted public tennis courts, three lighted ball fields, an historic park and three community gardens. And for your beloved dog, four dog off-leash areas so FIDO can RUN!
The new Backcountry Wilderness Area (8200 acres of open space) is a fabulous place to hike, view nature and encounter wildlife. The HCRA has eleven miles of private, natural surface trails and an additional twelve miles of public Douglas Country Trails throughout the Backcountry. Take your loved ones for an Elk Bugle hike, or on a Turkey gobbling vehicle tour. Your children will love meeting new friends and having new experiences at the Youth Adventure Camps.
