Independence Community Amenities Update

May 31, 2022

If you’re excited about the prospect of becoming a homeowner, it’s time to start your search for the perfect property! New construction with excellent amenities surrounded by an abundance of open space are becoming much more difficult to find, leaving many buyers to settle. The good news is that these types of communities are still out there. The Independence neighborhood is a conservation community tucked away in the charming town of Elizabeth, just 15 minutes from downtown Parker. What started as a working ranch in the 1860s has become a flourishing community, with many of the original, centuries-old buildings in the process of being restored at the heart of the community in Homestead Park. Here, we share an update on the amenities that our residents will enjoy and the targeted completion dates:  

Stargazer Event Lawn

Hosting or attending an outdoor event requires a beautifully manicured space. Our Stargazer Event lawn is perfect for socializing with friends and family or quiet reflection as you take part in viewing the twinkling stars. The event lawn is already completed and ready for residents to enjoy!

Victorian Home

Part of what makes our community exceptional is our commitment to honoring the legacy of the land. The original Victorian home, built by the original homesteaders in the 1880s, sits in the heart of the neighborhood in Homestead Park. Thanks to The History Quest, we’re in the process of restoring it to its full glory. A coffee shop will be part of the restored building, complete with artifacts from the original structure. Restoration specialist (and lifetime Coloradan) Shawn Strain is spearheading the effort, expected to be completed in late September 2022.

Dog Park

If you have furry friends, our dog park will be an excellent addition to your daily routine. It’ll offer plenty of space for pups to enjoy off-leash time, and you can’t beat the convenience of this amenity right here in the neighborhood. The dog park is currently anticipated to be finished by the end of November 2022. 


As the temperature rises, there’s nothing better than a dip in the pool to cool down. Planned near the community clubhouse, the pool and pool house will provide the perfect gathering space for your group. Whether you’d like to soak up some sun poolside or hop in for a swim, the spa-like pool area will be a community favorite. The pool is expected to be completed in spring 2023, just in time for the arrival of warmer weather.

Fitness Center

In close proximity to the pool in Homestead Park with all the equipment you need for a great workout, the brand-new fitness center will be completed next year.

Community Clubhouse

When you need to book a space for a party or private gathering, the community clubhouse will make hosting stress-free and convenient. The spacious indoor/outdoor area will offer the ideal setting for any gathering, from large events to small, right in the heart of the community.  

Community Garden

If you’re looking forward to testing out your green thumb, you’ll love the opportunity to grow your own fruits, veggies, and herbs in our community garden. The garden will feature raised beds and plenty of space to grow an ambitious harvest.

Miles of Hike and Bike Trails

Many miles within our community are dedicated to hike and bike trails, so you’ll always have the opportunity to enjoy the great outdoors. Many of these trails lead to bluffs and overlooks located throughout the property so you can take in the stunning views.

The amenities mentioned here are just a small sample of what our community will offer in the near future, with construction already underway.  Stop by for a model home tour to learn more about becoming a resident! Please contact our team.
