Rock Creek Neighborhood In Superior Colorado

Here’s a tour for you of the Rock Creek subdivision in Superior, Colorado. Many people have gravitated towards Rock Creek in Superior as their place to call home. I’ve met folks that say they like the master-planned community, the convenience of outstanding shopping and other amenities, proximity to jobs at Interlocken and soon ConocoPhillips, and of course the easy travel via Hwy 36 to Boulder and Denver.

The town of Superior was originally founded in the late 1890’s and owes its roots to the coal mining industry.  For most of it’s recent history Superior remained home to about 250 people. It was a quiet town that most folks coming to and from Boulder on the turnpike knew of only because of the Superior/Marshal exit sign they would see approaching Davidson Mesa from the east.

Then in the late 1980’s a large portion of land which was part of Rock Creek Ranch was subdivided, eventually McCaslin road was widened going south from Marshal Road and homes began popping up.

Now the Rock Creek development, which consists of homes mostly built by Richmond American, and a few custom builders, makes up the bulk of what we now consider Superior, Colorado.

Over time, a commercial area known as Superior Marketplace came into being, and brought with it businesses like Target, Costco, Wild Oats (now Whole Foods), Sports Authority, and a selection of other retail businesses.

One of the benefits of  Rock Creek that keeps property values up and folks moving into the area is the careful planning and continued efforts of town officials to preserve the quality of life in Rock Creek. While there are some undetermined plans for the 135 or so acres along the turnpike (Hwy 36 between Denver and Boulder is often still called the Boulder Turnpike by locals), for the most part, Rock Creek is a fully developed and complete community.

Given that there isn’t a continuing supply of newly built homes, as long as demand stays strong from home buyers wanting to live in the area, the real estate market and home prices will remain strong, as they have for years.

The area includes about 2700 single family homes, approximately 1800 multi-family homes (condos and apartments), and altogether is home to about 12,000 people.

One of the big attractions for many people are the well-planned parks and open spaces, and especially the way these public lands are all so interconnected. There are almost 600 acres of parks, green spaces and open spaces in Superior, and almost 30 miles of trails. These trails connect parks such as Community Park on the South end of Rock Creek which is home to Williams Field, Purple Park on the north end of the community, and numerous pocket parks, greenbelts, tot lots and the schools and community pools.
