Ken Caryl is a planned community located just 18 miles Southwest of downtown Denver, tucked away in the foothills of the Rocky Mountains. This community was first formed in 1970 by The John Manville Corporation, and now has a population of over 11,000 residents. The area that occupies Ken Caryl today was purposely chosen as a private oasis from the big city hub-bub. The scenery that surrounds this charming community is among the finest in the country with rolling grasslands, red rock formations, and beautiful views of picturesque mountain vistas. The occasional sighting of a deer, elk, mountain lion, or even a black bear is not uncommon and only reinforces that this is real Colorado living!

Ken Caryl Ranch is a nice blend of residential neighborhoods, commercial buildings and recreational facilities that all contribute to this community. Residents are granted access to all three community recreation centers, soccer fields, in-line hockey rink, tennis courts, softball diamond, an equestrian center, and over 20 miles of trails and paths, perfect for walking, horseback-riding, and biking.
The Ken-Caryl Ranch Metropolitan District (KCRMD) is the municipality that provides all the maintenance to the community parks, greenbelts, and facilities. They also enforce the Master Declaration of Covenants, Conditions and Restrictions for the purpose of maintaining community standards. Association dues are $35.00 per month, and go to support covenant and architectural control, the maintenance of open space, trash removal and recycling efforts, membership to the Equestrian Center, and the publication of the bi-weekly newspaper: Life at Ken-Caryl.
The Ken Caryl Ranch area is served by Jefferson County Public Schools. This school district has over 97,000 students making it one of the larger districts in the state.

The average district teacher has 12 years of experience and the student/teacher ratio is 17:1. In 2005, the high school’s graduating classes earned $75.7 million in college scholarships. Many engineers enjoy living here partially because of its proximity to Lockheed Martin Corporation nearby.
