Springtime Activities to Enjoy with Neighbors

April 22, 2021

Spring has arrived, bringing tulips, daffodils and the perfect time of year to enjoy outdoor, socially-distanced activities with neighbors. If you’re ready to become a homeowner in a tranquil community that’s commuting distance to a major city, look no further than Independence Neighborhood. Conveniently located less than an hour from Denver, we offer an excellent variety of floor plans designed by the best home builders in Elizabeth, Colorado. Our homes feature spacious lots and an abundance of community amenities that make it easy to soak up some sun. Need some inspiration for outdoor activities? Here, we share a few of our favorites to try this spring:


Cornhole is a classic pastime that individuals of all ages will enjoy. Due to the setup of this game, it’s easy to socially distance while still benefiting from some friendly competition. To play, you’ll need to set up a court. This should be a rectangular area approximately 8-10 feet wide and 40-45 feet long. You’ll also need two cornhole boards, pitcher’s boxes, and foul lines.

Outdoor Movie Night

If you have access to a projector, an outdoor movie night with friends is the perfect way to enjoy a balmy spring evening. Collaborate with neighbors to find a movie that’s been on your watch list, and set up a comfortable seating area in the backyard.


Colorado night skies are always a sight to behold, but they’re especially mesmerizing in the quiet setting of our conservation community. There are several must-see planetary events occurring this year, and our stargazer event lawn provides the ideal setting for marveling at the stars. Whether you choose to set up a stargazing party on your front porch, in your backyard, or at one of our community amenities, you and your neighbors will love the opportunity to take in the incredible sights.


Horseshoes is a game that’s best enjoyed by a small group, generally featuring two to four players. Like cornhole, this is a simple pastime that only requires a few materials for setup. You’ll just need metal stakes, two sets of horseshoes, and chalk or string to set the foul line. You can find more information regarding the scoring system here.

With longer days and pleasant weather ahead, it’s time to start planning outdoor activities to experience this spring. When you’re a homeowner in our beautiful community, there’s a plethora of socially distanced pastimes that you can safely enjoy with neighbors.
