Southeast Aurora - The Aurora Reservoir

By
Real Estate Agent with Exit Realty DTC 100070758

The Aurora Reservoir is located east of E-470, and south of I-70.  It is sandwiched between the rolling planes at the east/southest corner of Aurora, and a large number of residential homes on its western side.  The homes are divided amongst three main neighborhoods... WheatlandsBeacon Point, and Southshore.  Several of the homes in these areas back to the reservoir, providing unobstructed views of the water.  All of these neighborhoods are within walking and biking distance to any of the several walk-in access gates bordering the neighborhoods.  These gates provide free walk-in access to the reservoir and its numerous amenities.

The Aurora Reservoir is both a water source for the city of Aurora and a recreational area.  It is fed by a large underground  pipe with the water coming from Aurora's reservoirs, some over 200 miles away.  Streams near the reservoir are diverted around it to keep the water pristine.  Major features of the reservoir include a small swimming beach with facilities, a playground, a water sports area, a scuba area at the east end of the reservoir, and an archery area.  There is also a nearly 8 mile round-trip paved path around the entire reservoir, providing opportunities for walking, biking, running and access to fishing areas.

Erin, how wonderful that would be to reside in one of the three neighborhoods around the Aurora Reservoir!  My cousin owned a property overlooking the Dillon Reservoir and it backed up to the national forrest.  She loved her time spent there as I am sure anyone fortunate living around the Aurora Reservoir does!  How majestic are those mountains as well!  Such views!
