Neighborhood Spotlight: Frasier Meadows

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.


Getting Around


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.


Neighborhood Amenities

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.


Frasier Meadows in a Nutshell

Small, beautiful, and convenient.  Frasier Meadows is all of these things and more.  Built for families of all types and sizes, there’s a place for everyone.  Commuters have the best roads in Boulder at their fingertips, and bikers have a huge web of paths to explore.  Shopping and recreation are joined into one thanks to the Meadows shopping center and park.  There just really isn’t anything bad to say about this fantastic neighborhood.


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.

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
