Lone Tree Colorado Goes to the Dogs

On the last day of swimming season, the pool goes to the dogs.  Literally!  Only dogs are allowed in the pool and they love it!  They romp, jump, splash and swim.  No one comes away dry.  When we do leave it’s with a smile on our face and in our heart.  It’s a great event!

Map ~ Highlands Ranch Recreation Centers

Highlands Ranch is a very large planned community located in the south suburbs of Metro Denver.  The area enjoys a rich quality of life with many amenities in the area.

Homeowners pay small HOA dues each quarter for maintenance of the community and support for the 4-recreation centers.  Membership is included with the dues, so homeowners find this is quite a bargain.  Each of the rec centers is located in a different section of the Highlands Ranch, making it convenient for members to frequent one close to their homes.

Activities are abundant for everyone from the cradle on up. To locate the nearest rec center to your Highlands Ranch home, view the map below.
