Chautauqua Park is at the intersection of Grant and Baseline streets. The original
Chautauqua Neighborhood is directly southwest of the groomed portion of the
park, between the ranger bungalow, and the Chautauqua Auditorium. The East
Chautauqua Neighborhood is, you guessed it… the area immediatly east of the park
and auditorium, to the south of Baseline.
My Take On This Neighborhood:
I have included both the original Chautauqua area, filled with ‘summer homes’ from
the early days of the Chautauqua, Chautauqua Park area, and the East Chautauqua
Neighborhood, which has some of the larger homes. These homes are both ‘classic’ and
‘contemporary’ in design.
This is a wonderful neighborhood to live in if you like to have the ultimate experience
in easy access to one of the most historic and folkloric parts of Boulder, and it includes
immediate access to the quintessential hiking trails and the signature Flatirons rock
formations for which Boulder is most often known.
History:
The City of Boulder began preserving wild lands over 100 years ago! In 1898
Boulder citizens approved a bond issue to purchase 80 acres of land to be used as a
“Chautauqua.” Over the next twenty-two years Flagstaff Mountain, Bear Mountain,
Royal Arch, and Green Mountain were added to the early protected land system.
Chautauqua Dining Hall and Auditorium were built in 1898. The Chautauqua Ranger
Cottage was built in 1987.
What’s New Today:
There isn’t a lot of ‘new’ in the Chautauqua Neighborhood. A few homes were built,
or rebuilt in East Chautauqua over the years, and I think that’s what many people
like about this area. The ‘summer bungalows’ and smaller homes in the original
Chautauqua Neighborhood south of the park area rarely come up for sale, and when
they do, they sell quickly and command quite high prices.
