The East Boulder neighborhood of Frasier Meadows is one certainly worth looking into. The homes were built in the mid to late 60’s and are full of personality. In addition, there are plenty of condos and apartments for families of all sizes. The safe and beautiful winding streets and paths all weave this neighborhood together. For those looking for a quiet place to call home, Frasier Meadows is just the place.
Frasier Meadows has two excellent choices for driving in or out of town. The first is Baseline, perhaps the best route to get downtown. The second is the unique outlet right onto the Denver Boulder Turnpike. No other neighborhood in Boulder has access to both of these roads right out of the community. If public transportation is preferable, then the Meadows delivers yet again. The RTD has multiple stops along Baseline right in front of the neighborhood. And, to the south, the Park ‘n’ Ride is just across the street.
Bike riders should prepare themselves for an abundance of choice in Frasier Meadows. First there is the Meadow’s shopping center, which is bike accessible without touching a main road. Then there’s all the bike paths right along Baseline, such as the Boulder Creek path. From there, an entire network of options opens up. Whether it’s for work or play, biking from this neighborhood may be more convenient than driving.
As the similar names imply, Frasier Meadows touches right up to the Meadows shopping center. This little shopping plaza turns an afternoon of errands into a one trip affair. The Safeway carries all the family’s favorites, plus a Rite Aid on the corner for extra odds and ends. Or, why not make a day of it and get some ice cream at the locally owned Glacier Ice Cream. Plus there’s the Meadow’s branch of the public library right around back. What better way to spend a day than picking up a book and heading over to Burke Park to read by the water? This quiet little park offers one of a kind views of the majestic flatirons in the heart of the neighborhood.
For families with, or who plan to have, children, this neighborhood is ready with two nearby schools. Horizons is a K-8 located right next to Burke Park, which is perfect for older kids to walk or bike to. A little further across the street is Manhattan Middle school. While it is across Foothills Parkway, there is a convenient pedestrian path that connects these two neighborhoods safely. Parents can rest assured their kids will arrive safe thanks to this overpass.
