If “going to the park” brings to mind a trip to Reunion Park, that’s not altogether surprising. After all, with approximately 52 acres that include trails, athletic fields, an amphitheater, a rec center, and eight acres of lakes and waterfalls, Reunion Park is without question the community’s crown jewel.
But there are many more gems to discover at Reunion™ a Shea Homes® Community. As the community has grown, so has its collection of pocket parks—smaller neighborhood oasis near enough for impromptu play dates, Frisbee tosses, or clear-your-head alone time. Having these little green getaways just a few steps from home adds to everyone’s quality of life. Here’s the lowdown on the 10 other parks Reunion families enjoy. [read more…]
Ah. It’s the season of coziness. Saturday afternoons by the fire. Digging into a big bowl of chili. Blissfully nodding off, lulled by the soundtrack of your latest Netflix binge-watch.
We can do better than this, Coloradans.
Especially if you live in one of our Shea Homes Colorado Communities – BackCountry, Stepping Stone, or Reunion – winter need not be a four-walled purgatory until spring. Warm days are coming soon, so now’s the time to take steps (literally) to avoid a panic attack when shopping for your swimsuit.
At BackCountry, there are easy, daily ways to get moving. Strap on your snowshoes and explore the seven miles of trails and 467 acres of open space within BackCountry. Or venture onto the trails and 8,200 acres of open space in the adjacent wilderness area. No snowshoes? No problem. Residents can borrow a pair from the Sundial House whenever there is 12” or more of snow on the ground. That same terrain can be a blast for expert cross country skiers to explore too.
Next time you see a family smiling, assembled in well-coordinated outfits, maybe standing beside the lake at Reunion a master plan community by Shea Homes, take a look to see who’s on the other side of the camera. Chances are it’s Holly Pilz, Reunion resident and up-and-coming family photographer.
Owner of Holly Jean Photography, Holly found her calling only about a year ago. She had begun to realize how much she loved photographing her own daughters, ages 5, 3, and 1-1/2, but the turning point was when she took them to a professional photographer. Amazed by the quality of photos and aware of his wife’s passion for photography, Holly’s husband said, “You should become a professional photographer” and bought her her first camera.
She’s never looked back. Besides running her own growing business, Holly is a photographer for a social media company and shoots images for an antiques store. While Holly also shoots in her dining room/studio—especially newborn sessions—her favorite places are in the open spaces of Reunion.
As many Reunion residents know, a stroll through this lovely, 52-acre park is a delightful way to start or end your day. But for those who don’t yet indulge in this daily pleasure, we invite you on this virtual walk.
Reunion Park is the crown jewel of the community—although you’ll find no shortage of beautiful, natural spaces woven throughout the neighborhood. In fact, Reunion boasts 150 acres of parks, 10 miles of trails and 170 acres of open space. But the largest and most diverse space is Reunion Park.
