Winding Path Park

Stepping Stone, then and now.

by Shea Homes Colorado on April 27, 2015


Hard to believe, but it’s only been two years since ground was first broken at Stepping Stone in Parker, Colorado.  From stretches of dirt to a thriving community centered around a very active Lantern House and competition-size swimming pool, Stepping Stone has come a long way quickly.  And there’s so much more good stuff to come.

These photos below gauge how our community has grown, and hint at how a few more years will yield even more tree-filled parks, friendly neighbors, and an increasingly vibrant sense of community.  Enjoy!

And so it begins.  Shea Homes starts the earth moving process in November, 2012.  A not-so-glamorous trailer serves as headquarters for home buyers who already catch the vision.

Now located in beautifully furnished model homes, Shea Homes welcomes visitors to explore four model homes ranging in size from 1,863 to 3,110 square feet with base pricing from the $300s to the $400s.

Stepping Stone’s lonely first street, in contrast with the streetscapes of today (on warmer days) kids play and adults mingle.

Residents kept an eye on the progress during the winter, watching as the walls went up and the pool was dug.  Summer 2014 couldn’t come fast enough.

The Grand Opening in July of 2014 was a blast for every age group.

Ready, Set, Play at Winding Path Park!

by Shea Homes Colorado on December 15, 2014










There’s no better way to enjoy a beautiful day than with an invigorating walk on the Stepping Stone trails. May we suggest Winding Path Park as your destination? The park, completed in July, offers more than five acres of outdoor beauty and fun.

Reflecting the community’s design values of Exploration, Discovery, and Delight, the park uses actual stepping stones in both practical and artistic ways throughout. Winding Path Park features a shade structure with large stepping stones, expansive grassy play areas, gardens, and playgrounds surrounded by more natural areas. Pathways are made easily navigable at nighttime by LED solar-powered lights.

Parks are an essential ingredient at Stepping Stone, and Winding Path Park is just one link on the community’s necklace of beautiful, functional parks. Three more are already planned – Sunburst Park, Four Square Park, and Butterfly Park – so stay tuned for updates.  If being part of a master-planned community is important to you be sure to visit today to explore Stepping Stone and the Shea SPACES Discovery Collection.  For additional information, please call 720-851-1444 or visit





Everything tastes better outside. Bring your dinner to the picnic pavilion, no occasion required.










These over-sized stones were made to tromp on, just the way kids love to do at their favorite campsite.








Large, grassy areas offer prime space for soccer, football, and impromptu games of capture-the-flag.








Creative play structures let your kids’ imagination call the shots. Another playground is just steps away, next to the Lantern House.
