Living in Highlands Ranch, Colorado: Redstone Park

Redstone Park has many great offerings for its residents and visitors 

Another high 60/low 70's day in March in the Denver area.  So, it was only 2 months ago that the streets were buried in snow, we were house bound and the deep freeze was upon us.  But here is the spring that Coloradans love and expect.  So what would you do if you lived in Highlands Ranch on such a day?  Well here's an idea -

Head to Redstone Park.Redstone Park Highlands Ranch Colorado

Redstone Park is located on the west side of Highlands Ranch, often referred to as Westridge.  It is one of the larger parks in Highlands Ranch and its offerings and activities are almost endless.  It is located at the intersections of Town Center Drive and Foothills Canyon Blvd, just east of Santa Fe Drive.  It is nestled between the neighborhoods of Westridge Pointe and Highlands Ranch Golf Club.

A stocked fishing pond can begin your adventure, with a trickling stream running through it,  but don't forget to pack a picnic to enjoy for later at one of the shelters or of course you can always make your own picnic spot with a blanket upon one of the many fields.  You can also bring Fido on a leash, or head over to the dog park on the east side of the park (cross Foothills Canyon Blvd) to let your doggie pals romp free.

Is tennis your thing?  Lighted tennis courts sit next to the Redstone tennis center where lessons will begin shortly for the spring and summer. 

Have little ones in tow?  They will be worn out by the end of the day by  the variety of activities on the Play-sets at Redstone Parkplayground - between a sand play area, 3 different play structures and swings their adventures will never end.  The play area is also surrounded by good size boulders, which seem to be a popular spot for the pre-school set to hop from one to the next. 

Have older kiddos or feeling adventurous yourself?  Bring your skateboard or trickster bike and head to the bike/skate park.  This is a popular area and even if you aren't daring to try and ride yourself, its fun to stop by and see what everyone is up to.

Keep on heading to the west and you will run into the ball fields and batting cage.  The ball fields are lit as well Soccer fields and ball fields at Redstone Parkand are always hopping through the summer months.   Some of the smaller fields become soccer fields in the spring and football fields in the fall - and then there are also 3 other soccer fields that run behind the homes of Westridge Pointe. 

All in all, this park is full of fun for everyone.  Restrooms are located in three areas (playground, tennis courts & ball fields) and parking is plentiful throughout the park.  Like most park shelters in Highlands Ranch, they can be reserved for a small fee for parties and gatherings. When the parking lots are empty you are sure to find families teaching little ones the art of two-wheel biking, it has become a favorite local spot to master bike-riding

with its large flat lots. 

Ready to venture further, walk to the east side of the park, head toward the golf course (cross Town Center Drive) and you will see the header trail to the Highline Canal.  This leader trail trickles through the golf course and the homes in the Golf Club before meeting the main trail.  Bike or walk, both are great for this trail.  Oh, and the mountain views from almost anywhere in the park are phenomenal.

Hi Chris, I am glad you received them in time.  That should save you a good bundle, the window prices are a bit high IMO.  I think they received some snow up there this weekend.  We had rain here Saturday but Sunday was beautiful as you can see in the photos here. 

It was kind of cool while we were in Florida, but it was nice with all the touristy things that we were doing - no one was too hot.  We were only stuck in a down pour once so it wasn't bad.
