Bluff Lake Neighborhood…Beauty, Nature and Community
The Bluff Lake Neighborhood, one of Stapleton’s newest, will feed the nature lover and the practical side of you. The nature comes from the nearby preserve. The Bluff Lake Nature Center is a 123-acre urban wildlife refuge. It is home to native plants and animals which live in a variety of habitats. Did you know that the Bluff Lake Nature Center is Denver’s largest open space managed as natural habitat?
And to enjoy the scenery of Bluff Lake, explore the great outdoors on its two miles of trails. You can stroll around the main trail which meanders around the lake. That path is just over a mile long. You can also jog the Creek Trail along the south edge of Sand Creek. Creek Trail is part of the Sand Creek Regional Greenway comprised of fourteen miles of public trails. You can run or walk for miles on these trails which connect the High Line Canal in Aurora, Colorado with the South Platte River Greenway in Commerce City. The Sand Creek Regional Greenway is open every day, sun up until sun down. You can bring your puppy with you as leashed dogs are encouraged to enjoy the trail as well. Be sure to stop on the trail and take a few quick pics for Instagram.
The Stanley Marketplace is also close to Bluff Lake. This unique shopping and meeting place features local vendors and an incredible venue for events in the refurbished hangar. Stanley Marketplace also has an eye on sustainability that goes far past reusing the old Stanley hangar. They have incorporated bio swales in the parking areas which allows for more shade trees which reduces heat. Developers have made it a priority to restore the wetlands along Westerly Creek. And the human factor is also very real in this project. It is estimated that this project will create about 500 new jobs. Who doesn’t love that idea?
The Eastbridge Town Center is another new development that will showcase some incredible retail establishments. Troy Guard is opening two restaurants at Eastbridge; Los Chingones and a breakfast place. This will be Troy’s first attempt at a breakfast location and I am sure it will be as good at Guard and TAG or Buba. Troy is a local businessman, he lives and works in Stapleton. How do we know Troy will bring incredible food to Bluff Lake? Take a moment to watch this awesome YouTube video.
This development will also host a King Soopers store as its anchor. Okay, so there was a little bit of a protest around getting a large retailer rather than a small grocer, which would also come with a smaller parking lot. There was even a petition drive which collected more than 400 signatures in opposition of King Soopers moving in. Now it just seems that residents are just anxious to have another grocery store to visit. King Soopers boasts of its local sourcing and support of the Colorado economy. The grocer also supports local growers touting the produce is fresher because it is delivered quickly after harvest. King Soopers supports over 150 Colorado companies and sells locally produced items right in their stores making it easy to support your local businesses.
