In the discussion of the best Arvada neighborhoods, Meadowglen and Pomona Lakes often come up.
Meadowglen is a lovely neighborhood in northeast Arvada. Meadowglen is considered one of the best in Arvada neighborhoods because it's a small, close community; it has a neighborhood park and pool; and a nice lake with walking paths all around.
Meadowglen is located near Two Ponds National Wildlife Refuge, and near plenty of shopping and entertainment.
There is a homeowners' association, which makes sure homes are kept up to neighborhood standards for appearance.
Meadowglen has 279 homes. 10 homes have sold in Meadowglen in the past year, for a 4% move-out rate. Their prices ranged from $224,000 to $377,000 ($242,000 is the low price if you eliminate foreclosures). Median is $273,750.
If you've thought about buying a house in Arvada's Meadowglen neighborhood, but the prices are slightly out of your reach, or you don't want to deal with an HOA, let me make a suggestion.
Check out Arvada's Pomona Lakes neighborhood.
Pomona Lakes is just across the street from Meadowglen (east of Club Crest Drive and north of 81st Place). It's a larger neighborhood, and some homes don't look as tidy as the homes in Meadowglen, due to lack of an HOA.
But for a lot of people, not having an HOA is a huge plus!
Arvada's Pomona Lakes neighborhood has two parks. No community swimming pool, but two City pools are within walking or bike-riding distance, one indoor and one outdoor.
Pomona Lakes homes are about 10 years older than Meadowglen homes. One advantage to being an older neighborhood, is the homes have larger yards.
Pomona Lakes has just over 600 homes. 14 Pomona Lakes homes sold in the past year, for a 2% move-out rate. Their prices ranged from $160,000 to $292,000 ($200,000 is the low price if you eliminate foreclosures and short sales). Median price is $239,750.

Gardeners might enjoy my posts about gardening in Denver to Boulder’s front range.
I write posts on real estate issues and local events in the Denver metro area, especially those communities between Denver and Boulder, as a public service. My hope is to give people an idea of the ‘flavor’ of our community, in case they’re new or moving to the Denver area.
I am a residential real estate agent, happily helping folks buy a house or sell a house in the beautiful and friendly suburbs northwest of Denver.
