The Metro District is very similar to an HOA in that it manages certain aspects of the community and has a Board of Directors to govern District operations. Stillwater Community Management manages the Leyden Rock Metro District. Visit the Leyden Rock Metropolitian District for more information.
About the Community
Nature is the landscape architect in the beautiful rural community of Leyden Rock in northwest Arvada. Located near 82nd Avenue west of Indiana Street, Leyden Rock includes 1,439 homes on 1,033 acres. With an unprecedented 600 acres, or 60% of the community, designated as open space, you’ll love being surrounded by sweeping vistas and dramatic
mountain views. An extensive network of trails and parks provides you the opportunity to walk, hike, bike or ride a horse as far as you desire. Neighborhood parks and the community clubhouse and pool also provide numerous opportunities for active recreation.
Although it feels like rural living, exceptional Jefferson County R-1 schools (Ralston Valley High School, Drake Middle School and West Woods Elementary School) and a wide selection of shopping, including Flatirons Mall are close by and there's easy access to downtown Denver, Boulder and Golden. According to a recent U.S. News & World Report ranking of schools, Ralston Valley High School received a silver medal and was ranked one of the best high schools in the country.
Trails & Open Space
Leyden Rock was created to be sensitive to the unique beauty of the area; including conserving the landforms, protecting the Barbara Gulch Open space that spans Leyden Creek from the west and the east, reducing light, and maximizing access to the rural landscape, sweeping views and majestic mesas of the property.
Two neighborhoods are nestled around a centralized neighborhood park, with play and picnic areas and a pool and clubhouse. A system of walking trails from a regional trail to soft surfaced “single track” trails will link the neighborhoods, the community open space and a vast regional open space network. The community reflects a classic western character reminiscent of architectural styles of the national parks and the “dude ranch” era of the early twentieth century.
