Both remote and well-connected, Roxborough Park is an affluent Rocky Mountain community at the foot of the Front Range. The pricey new homes are surrounded by rugged natural beauty that will call to the wild-child in your pack. Since Denver is just 25 miles northeast, any canine comfort your pup might want is in reach.
There's a reason that the word "Park" is in the community name: it is tucked between state parks to the north and south and Pike National Forest to the west. Sadly, Roxborough State Park does not allow dogs (not even very, very good ones). There are plenty of mountain trails where your buddy is totally welcome, though.
For a more leisurely stroll, most subdivisions have excellent sidewalks and many have private parks and walking trails. Chatfield Farms Park and Deidre Meyer Park both have great views of the mountains. Marmot Park has a playground and some open space, and keep an eye out for prairie dogs who sometimes pop up to see what’s going on. They're cute, but make sure your pup avoids contact as prairie dogs can carry disease.
Roxborough Park is still unincorporated, but that may change soon: this community is going through a pawpulation explosion. After doubling in size between 2000 and 2010, Roxborough Park has continued to expand ever since. Until the shopping infrastructure catches up with the housing boom, necessities like grooming, vet visits, and pet-supply shopping will require a drive. About 25 minutes away, Littleton is the nearest major retail hub: you'll find plenty of options to suit even the most discerning dogs.
