Neighborhood Spotlight: Keewayden

Nestled in the Southeast corner of Boulder Colorado is the quaint neighborhood of Keewayden.  Placed between Baseline and South Boulder road, Keewayden has the advantage of easy access to downtown and major highways, but also has so many amenities that are just a quick walk or bike ride away.  The eclectic homes found in Keewayden were built between 1965 and 1978, giving the neighborhood a diverse and appealing image.  Most homes offer personal views of the majestic flatirons to the west that Boulder is known for.

Getting Around
Bike Trails

The South Boulder Creek trail and the trails that branch off offer more than just a view of nature.  Right in Keewayden’s backyard, this trail is perfect for walks and bike rides both long and short.  Along the way, trails conveniently pass the East Boulder Rec Center (EBRC) which offers a wide range of amenities.  Trails within Keewayden also connect to Keewayden Meadows Park, the EBRC off-leash dog park, Manhattan Middle School, and open space.


RTD offers a bus to Fairview and down Baseline and Broadway into downtown Boulder in quick reliable fashion.  For trips that require a car, Baseline, South Boulder Road/Table Mesa, Foothills Parkway, & US-36 are in the neighborhood.  Between these major roads & highways, Boulder and surrounding areas are conveniently accessible.

Neighborhood Amenities

The EBRC offers an indoor pool, full gym, climbing wall, tennis courts, fitness classes, and much more.  The EBRC is a great asset for the many neighborhood families during summer including many school age camps.  Manhattan Middle School is in the heart of Keewayden and Fairview High School is nearby.

It isn’t just schools and the EBRC that living in Keewayden grants easy access too.  The Meadows shopping area is walking distance over the Foothills Parkway pedestrian overpass.  Here you will find just about everything you need from Safeway, salons, Michaels, Rite Aide, the locally owned Art Cleaners, and much more.  The Meadows branch of the Boulder Public Library also finds its home within this cozy shopping center for readers of all ages.  Getting the morning coffee and breakfast is also just a quick walk away at Colorado’s own Big Daddy Bagels, and for an afternoon treat there’s Glacier Ice cream, also locally owned and operated, just across the parking lot.

Keewayden in a Nutshell

Keewayden is a longstanding neighborhood in Boulder that has been home to many families for years.  It has all the necessities one could need within arm’s reach, but without the crowded nature of living downtown.  Outdoor enthusiasts love the trails and rec center, yet getting downtown is easy by bike, bus, or car.  Keewayden is one of the best examples of how living in East Boulder can cater to people of all lifestyles.
