Sterling Ranch Announces Newest Community Amenity, Prospect Park

Prospect Park Final Concept Design

Sterling Ranch, a 21st-century master-planned community, has announced the community’s newest amenity, Prospect Park. The 8-acre park will feature a fully inclusive design, including a pool, playground, picnic areas, a multi-purpose turf field (for youth soccer, concerts and movie nights), and a basketball court. Upon completion, it will be easily accessible via a network of existing and planned paths and thoroughfares. The playground and pool are designed to be inclusive, providing opportunities for those of varying abilities and ages to play and relax.

“Sterling Ranch is all about meeting the needs of our residents and Prospect Park’s inclusive design further emphasizes our community spirit of helping others who face unique challenges,” said Gary Debus, general manager of the Sterling Ranch Community Authority Board. “We have been active participants in the ‘Helping a Hero’ program and were part of a team that donated property and a home in Sterling Ranch to wounded warrior Corporal Ryan Garza. We’ve also been strong supporters of the Reynolds family’s annual ‘Miles 4 Madison’ fundraising race through Sterling Ranch, to provide recreational and educational opportunities to families with children with special needs. It’s efforts like these that define Sterling Ranch as a community of caring.”

“We are thrilled to be part of such a wonderful community in Sterling Ranch and I was honored to be part of the task force for the new park,” said Sterling Ranch resident, Tracy Hoel. “We live right down the street and my daughter Caitlin will be able to be included and enjoy this all-abilities park. My grandsons who live in the community as well are so excited that we can all enjoy together as a family and with all our friends and neighbors!”

Prospect Park is the latest addition to the growing list of community amenities and support already completed at Sterling Ranch, including:

The Sterling Center. A gathering place, hosting several vital neighborhood businesses including a coffeehouse, a family dentist, UCHealth primary and urgent care, along with Steadman Hawkins physical therapy, a credit union, an ophthalmologist, community events and rotating food trucks serving up unique eats.

Primrose School. A supportive, nurturing early education center for the young children of the Sterling Ranch community.  

The Overlook Recreation Center. An all-important social and recreational hub for the Sterling Ranch community, The Overlook provides 4,900 square feet of space, including a Great Hall with a catering kitchen, a fitness center, two outdoor pavillions and a pool. 

Smart City Technology. Every Sterling Ranch home is equipped with smart-home technology and fiber Internet, giving residents lightning-fast speeds for streaming and downloading, along with the convenience that comes with the smart-home gadgets available today. 

Open Space. Nestled between two state parks, Sterling Ranch’s pedestrian-friendly community features 30 miles of trails and nearly 40% open space, allowing residents to enjoy the outdoors and make the most of every sunny Colorado day. Sterling Ranch is the only community in Colorado to provide an annual Colorado State Parks pass, making adventure and exploration even easier.

A Community Lifestyle Director. Plans intentional, enriching events for Sterling Ranch residents that foster connection with the outdoors and each other. All events cultivate a supportive culture, ignite new forever friendships, and offer opportunities to give back.

Douglas County will be helping with $2.5 million in funding for the park as a regional amenity.

“We greatly appreciate Douglas County and the County Commissioners for their assistance in making Prospect Park a reality,” said Debus. “We’ve invested millions of dollars into the amenities at Sterling Ranch, and are looking forward to adding many more in the years to come. It’s also been an investment of time and energy, working with residents to deliver the type of community they want.  Prospect Park is our latest and greatest addition to Colorado’s most successful master-planned community.”
