The Denver South Metro area has more than 180,000 residents. The area is lightly wooded, mostly with ponderosa pine, with broken terrain characterized by mesas, foothills and small streams. Cherry Creek and Plum Creek rise in South Metro County and flow north toward Denver and into the South Platte River. Both were subject to flash flooding in the past, Plum Creek being partially responsible for the Denver flood of 1965. Cherry Creek is now dammed.
Most residents commute to workplaces elsewhere in the metropolitan area outside of the county. Suburban development is displacing the ranching economy of the county.
The Denver South Metro aree is part of the Denver-Aurora-Lakewood, CO Metropolitan Statistical Area. It is located midway between Colorado's two largest cities, Denver and Colorado Springs. The Denver South Metro area has the highest median household income of any Colorado county or statistical equivalent. It is ranked eighth nationally in that category, and has the highest of any county or equivalent not in the northeastern US.
There are numerous neighborhoods within the South Metro Denver area, each with their own unique characteristics and qualities.
Cherry Hills Village: The City of Cherry Hills Village has prevailed in maintaining its semi-rural character against changing economic trends. Although new development will continue, Cherry Hills strives to preserve its unique character as a quality, single-family residential community in the Denver metropolitan area. Average Sales Price for the Cherry Hills Village area are $2.2 MM+. Cherry Hills Village has been recognized by Sperlings as one of the Best Places to Live.
Greenwood Village: Fifty years ago, Greenwood Village was a land strewn with farms, dairies, gravel roads, and a population of 500 residents. Today, those rural elements have been preserved with the addition of a developed, dynamic blend of urban and residential areas, and nationally recognized business parks that contribute to the well being of the village.
Highlands Ranch: There is much more to the history of Highlands Ranch than meets the eye. Underneath the layer of present-day modernism, lives an excitingly vivid past just waiting to be revealed. Among the earliest pioneers to this area was an Austrian immigrant named Johanne Welte. With the help of his brother-in-law Plaziduo Gassner, Welte established the Big Dry Creek Cheese Ranch in the 1870’s, formerly located on what is now University Blvd. just north of Highlands Heritage Regional Park. The dairy ranch was well known for its production of butter as well as Brick and Limburger cheeses. The Cheese Ranch was comprised of a main farmhouse, large barn, and many other out buildings. Welte planted fields of alfalfa, corn, barley, beets, and eventually cultivated a 10 acre fruit tree orchard.
Lone Tree: A new subdivision known as Lone Tree opened in northern Douglas County on Memorial Day weekend 1982. The first resident had moved in and the second and third arrived a few days later. By the fall of 1982 approximately nine residents lived in Lone Tree. During that time the Park Meadows Metropolitan District was formed. An election was held in early fall in which about nine people (several representing developers) cast ballots. The formation of the district passed by one vote, putting the district $8 million in debt (nearly one million per current resident).
Parker: According to popular legend, Parker can trace its colorful history to the establishment of the Pine Grove Way Station by Alfred Butters, around 1863. Prior to that time, the area was used for hunting by Indians and renowned archaeologists have unearthed several semi-permanent hunting camps. The first residents of the area were the ancients (prehistoric), including Plains-Woodland Indians, and by the 1800s consisted mostly of Arapahoe, Cheyenne and Utes.
Castle Pines: The City of Castle Pines covers approximately 6,114 acres or 9.55 square miles. The 2008 incorporation of Castle Pines included 2,437 acres which extended west and north to Daniels Park and Highlands Ranch open space, south to the unincorporated area of Castle Pines Village and originally east to Interstate 25. The 2009 annexation of the Canyons property added 3,342 acres, extending the City’s municipal boundaries east of I-25. The City’s municipal boundaries east of I-25 extend north to the Reuter-Hess Reservoir, east to Castle Park Ranches and south to Crowfoot Valley Road, Sapphire Pointe and Happy Canyon Estates.
