I have lived in Roxborough Park since I was born. Same house, but different neighbors, no matter who moved in, our little community has always been a family. I have never felt unsafe while living here, at the entrance we have a guard shake, so we know no one bad is getting into our neigborhood. At night it is so very quite and since we are located between two mountains there isn't too much light pollution, so star gazing is perfect. I couldn't imagine living any where else, Roxborough is my home and its going to be break my heart to leave it in the fall, but I know I can always come back to where it all began for me.

It’s safe and beautiful.
Folks are upper class. Skate park brings in folks that don’t seem to fit the town. Not good if you homeschool, maybe only a handful of families there do . The library is great. Rattle snakes are very abundant . Bears will go out in daylight into yards and garages for food. Majority of people will walk dogs without leashes.
Tons of amazing playgrounds that are usually empty ..
You have to deal with lots of cyclists when trying to go in or out of town . In Waterton they will ride in clumps and block off the road. It’s a huge safety hazard but no one does anything ...
Water bill will be double what you pay anywhere else in Colorado.
Roxborough is a great place to raise a family, if you can afford it. It is seeing exponentially increasing housing costs and with that everything else raises with it. It is not uncommon to see a 1,500 sq ft house selling for over $350K, while being outdated with no yard. Many families have been here a while and got in before costs went crazy. With the new Sterling Ranch development nearby I can not imagine the costs are slowing anytime soon. the only other downside is some, not all, but some neighborhoods have no HOA and you can tell. The pros do outweigh the cons. If you are lucky enough to work at Lockheed Martin your commute is less than 5 mins. not bad for everywhere else and with the lightrail into the city only 20 min drive you really can get anywhere. Most people are very friendly and there are a ton of community involvement opportunities. The restaurants are not bad, Angels Share and JP's are definitely the best. Overall not a bad place to live if you can afford it.
