Special Alert
Stapleton & Lowry
add this add this


Urban trails connect the parks and residential areas to village-like shopping areas in Stapleton/Lowry/Northfield. In fact, 30 percent of the land in this idyllic suburban neighborhood is preserved for parks and open space, highlighted by Central Park, where dogs, joggers, cyclists, and rollerbladers can be found on paths virtually any day of the week. Biking and hiking paths also connect the area to the 17,000-acre Rocky Mountain Arsenal National Wildlife Refuge (6550 Gateway Rd.) where a plethora of wildlife roams the plains east of downtown. It's not unusual to spot golden eagles soaring in the skies above and bison wandering the wilderness. The neighborhood is also home to the newly christened Dick's Sporting Goods Park (6000 Victory Way, Commerce City) an 18,000-seat stadium surrounded by a fully lit 24-field professional soccer complex. It is considered the most state-of-the-art stadium and field complex in the world and is home to the 2010 MLS Cup Champions the Colorado Rapids. The pedestrian streets and fountains at The Shops at Northfield Stapleton (8340 Northfield Blvd.) offer a relaxed, outdoor shopping experience, with 18 movie theaters, sidewalk cafes, and more. If you want to get away from the hustle and bustle of downtown, Northfield Stapleton may be just what you're looking for.
