Communities We Serve

Lyons

The small community of Lyons is surrounded by spectacular sandstone cliffs, evergreen trees, and both branches of the St. Vrain River. Known as the “Double Gateway to the Rockies”, Lyons is positioned at the intersection of highways 7 and 36 and surrounded by three Boulder County Open Space parcels totaling over 10,000 acres. This close-knit community has just over 2,000 residents (approximately 5,000 in the surrounding area) and owes its original foundation to its sandstone quarries. In addition to its unique sandstone, Lyons is known as the home of Planet Bluegrass, a gorgeous riverside venue that brings world-renowned musicians to town during their popular festivals. The Sound of Lyons event brings talented classical musicians. If blues is more your style, Oscar Blues with its world famous Dale’s Pale Ale microbrew should do the trick.
The Lyons art scene is equally vibrant- just take a look at the sculptures on Main Street. Lyons serves as a community and public forum for artists of every kind. You won’t find chain stores in town but a collection of unique businesses reflecting the interests of its patrons. Some examples include a wonderful quilt shop, outdoor recreation equipment store, bike store, a fitness center, several yoga studios, a dance studio and many unique restaurants. Outdoor recreation opportunities abound also with kayaking, hiking, road and mountain biking, horseback riding and fishing. Lyons is home to the Lyons Outdoor Games, which brings world-class kayakers and bike racers/jumpers to town to show off their logic-defying tricks.

Lyons has three community parks and a dog park. The LaVern Johnson Park has been completely rebuilt since the flood of 2013 and is better than ever with a new kayak course, children’s playgrounds, multiple swimming holes, sand volleyball court, tent and RV camping, grass field, and ice rink. At certain times of the year, you can see eagles nesting in the red rock cliffs above. Bohn Park is next on the docket to be rebuilt and locals are excited to have this park restored.

Lyons Elementary and Middle/Senior high schools play an important role in promoting the sense of community in town. The elementary school has approximately two classes per grade and enrolls preschoolers through 5th graders. Middle school enrollment includes 6th-8th graders, approximately 195 students. The high school typically enrolls 215 students. This small school environment allows kids and teachers the opportunity to know one another better, engage in the learning process, and take advantage of extracurricular activities. Lyons High School typically has among the highest academic test scores and extracurricular participation rates in the district and graduates have sought higher education at some of the most competitive universities in the nation. The Elementary school has received the Governor’s Distinguished Improvement Award for the last three years and the John Irwin School of Excellence Award in 2017.

 

Longmont

Named after Vernon Golden who was a miner. He donated the almost 100 acres to the City of Longmont. The park itself has almost 3 miles of trails.
On most days, you will find people fishing, walking and biking the place. Truly a beautiful spot to relax, exercise and enjoy the beauty of nature.
Longmont was named after its incredible views of Longs Peak and was the first planned community in Boulder County. Originally known for agriculture, Longmont is currently home to biotechnology and energy businesses such as IBM, Seagate and GE Energy. Downtown Longmont has been revitalized with numerous shops and restaurants and has many historic buildings. With around 85,000 residents, Longmont has many amenities including an airport, large library, recreation center, 3 city golf courses, multiple parks, and bike trails. Longmont schools are part of the St. Vrain Valley School District and have received numerous awards. Longmont is a wonderful community with some of the most affordable housing prices in Boulder County.

Longmont schools are part of the St. Vrain Valley School District and have received numerous awards under the leadership of 2013 National Superintendent of the Year Don Haddad. In the St. Vrain schools, 78% are accredited with Distinction or Performance. There are many educational choices in Longmont including 14 elementary schools,

1 K-8, 5 middle schools, 3 high schools, 3 charter schools, and one alternative school. The district has had success securing grants including a 16.6 million Race to the Top Grant and Invest in Innovation Grant for 3.6 million. The district has also been able to enlist the support of companies like RidegeviewTel and IBM to meet educational goals.

 

Boulder

Boulder is nationally recognized for its scenic beauty and top rankings for quality of life, health and wellness, food, education and art. Home to the University of Colorado at Boulder founded in 1876, CU has historic buildings in a gorgeous setting, an enrollment of just under 32,000, world-renowned faculty and sports participation in one of the toughest conferences in the nation- the Pac 12. Although CU enhances the cultural, artistic and athletic opportunities in the community, Boulder is more than just a college town.

Boulder has attracted many top science and technology firms including an upcoming expansion of Google. Start-up companies have also made Boulder their home as well as long-time companies like Celestial Seasonings.

Recreation is highly prized in Boulder. The Flatirons are a must-see for all visitors and a favorite for locals seeking a quick hike or climb up the monumental flatiron rock formations.

Surrounded by thousands of acres of recreational open space, conservation easements, and nature preserves, Boulder provides miles of trails for hiking and biking. Boulder also boasts three city recreation centers in addition to CU’s recently renovated recreation center, all with diverse programming.

Boulder has a unique culture in the state of Colorado largely based on its liberal electorate. Social activism and global thinking are common along with diverse restaurant menu choices for vegans and prevalent environmental consciousness. The Boulder Valley School District offers many choices at all levels of secondary education and is consistently ranked in the top three districts in the state.

Due to Boulder’s unique culture, scenic beauty, recreational and educational opportunities and of course general quality of life, home prices in Boulder are among the highest in the county.

 

Pinewood Springs

A small, close-knit community located in the Rocky Mountains between Lyons and Estes Park, Pinewood Springs has an expansive valley with towering pines, interesting rock formations, and the Little Thompson River flowing through the valley floor. Real estate in Pinewood Springs is generally more affordable than in Lyons or Boulder despite the extraordinary natural beauty of the area. Lyons is a short 12-minute drive and Estes Park/Rocky Mountain National Park is only 20 minutes away.

There are many hiking/running trails in Pinewood among the gorgeous terrain. The Villa Tatra and the Colorado Cherry Company (I highly recommend the cherry pie!) are the only restaurants in the area but both are excellent. Pinewood is greener and cooler in the summer compared with Lyons and snowier in the winter due to the increased elevation.

Roads and bridges were repaired and the riverbanks were fortified after the 2013 flood. While students living in Pinewood are officially part of the Estes Park School District that provides school bus service daily, some families opt to enroll their children in Lyons schools.
