It has been verified, Stapleton Colorado is the place to live. And if you have a family, it simply rocks.
Stapleton is a cool place that has its roots in recycling. The place itself sprung up from the old Stapleton Airport. The Stapleton Development Foundation met in 1990 and developed a master plan for the site of Stapleton in 1995. The development was centered around a pedestrian focus rather than on vehicles. At that time over one third of the airport space of 4,700 acres was scheduled to become public park space. Construction began in 2001 and as of 2008 there were 3,200 homes and 400 apartments. Stapleton is the largest neighborhood in the city of Denver and part of Stapleton is in

The roots of Stapleton are unique. A project that took something not so amazing, and turned those 4,700 acres into the beautiful, pedestrian friendly place that is Stapleton Colorado. The Denver School of Science and Technology opened a campus in Stapleton and since graduating its first class in 2008, 100 percent of DSST: Stapleton seniors have matriculated to a four-year university. Must be all that open space and beautiful scenery.
Now that we are thinking about education, let’s talk about schools. Stapleton’s schools are ranked some of the best in Colorado. For schoolchildren, Bluff Lake is a destination for summer camps, bird walks, nature lectures, wildlife education, geocache treasure hunts, and fireside s’mores. It is just one part of the school-based and public programs.
