Rock Creek Neighborhood

Updated: Feb 25

The Rock Creek neighborhood is a master planned community adjacent to the southern side of Louisville, Colorado. Rock Creek has homes in virtually all price ranges for the area.


LOCATION:


The Rock Creek neighborhood is comprised mostly of homes built by Richmond American Homes. It also includes some custom homes and even a gated community on the northern end, some semi-custom homes built by Golden Design Group at the southern end, and a few built by Engle Homes.


Rock Creek is adjacent to the Flatiron Crossing Mall just across the border of Superior, CO and Broomfield, CO to the south east. It has excellent access to the Boulder Turnpike (Hwy 36), and is right across the highway from Louisville, CO.


MY TAKE ON THIS NEIGHBORHOOD:


Rock Creek is a very good value for those who want a wide selection of homes to choose from in a wide variety of price ranges.


There are excellent public amenities including two free community swimming pools, a large community park which includes baseball fields, soccer fields, a turf-based football field, and children's playgrounds.


Rock Creek was built around the concept of kids, families, and all age groups. As a result, there are miles of paved trails, many ponds, greenways, pocket parks, and two excellent schools within the neighborhood.


HISTORY:


Rock Creek started with the annexation of the Rock Creek Ranch in the very late 1980's and early 1990's as the Town of Superior grew exponentially in geographic terms. In the early 1990's the neighborhood began with custom homes built around the area called Purple Park at the north end of the neighborhood, and construction of homes continued through 2003.


In the early 2000's commercial developers brought in a Safeway, and some smaller retail shops, then came the Community Park, and eventually Eldorado K-8 school.


WHAT’S NEW TODAY:


Can you say the Sports Stable? full sheets of ice for hockey, full rugby pitches, and lots of new townhomes as they build up the new downtown.


Boulder Creek Neighborhoods is building homes on the old Rogers Farm along McCaslin, and their Lanterns project of homes just north of 88th.


There are still three areas of undeveloped land within Rock Creek. One adjacent to Eldorado K-8, is now a park, and one at the intersection of Coalton and McCaslin north east of the traffic circle and another along Coalton Road near the Bell Flatirons apartments. None of these are currently open space. Ground breaking on the property by Bell Flatirons has started and we expect some very nice modern town homes to go in there. To the east of that we may see two new hotels over close to Flatiron Crossing mall.


LOCAL HIGHLIGHTS:


There are 594 acres of parks, greenspace and open space, 27 miles of trails, over 3000 single family homes, and approximately 2000 multi-family homes (condos and apartments).


Super Target, Costco, Michaels, Panera, Office Max, Safeway, and many other retail businesses provide the town with a solid tax base.
