Rock Creek Superior Parks and Recreation December

Home is more than just a house. It is where we live, love, laugh and play. Rock Creek is a community with play in mind.  There is a fantastic walking pathsystem throughout the community. You’ll see soccer moms with strollers, kids and parents on foot, bikes, roller blades.  There are dogs too, usually with their owners, all enjoying the path system.  And the paths lead to great things.

There is a full size basketball court with ample parking and large round globes for onlookers to sit upon or children to play with as dads get some exercise.  The spheres also do a good job of separating parking lot from playing surface.

Down the street and just behind the Safeway shopping center, you’ll find a large sports complex.  There is something for everyone in the family here.  Kids of all ages are going to love the playground.  There is also a picnic shelter, bathrooms and ball fields.  Rock Creek has Stewart and Scanlan Baseball Fields.  These two baseball fields are the real deal, with the far wall about 320 yards out.  Each field is lit and has an infield area and a green grass outfield.  There is ample seating for visitors to watch the games.  Next to this is Williams Sports Field — an artificial turf sports field. It is marked every ten yards for football and also has soccer goals.  The fields are located at 1350 Coalton Road, Superior, Co 80027.

In the mood for tennis? There are four courts in Rock Creek. On Sunday when I visited, the YMCA of Boulder was operating a tennis clinic. The tennis courts are located next to one of Rock Creek’s two swimming pools.  The outdoor pools are a big hit in Colorado’s dry warm summers.  The second swimming pool is located next to a small skate park.

There is a playground with outdoor bar-b-q’s near the tennis courts, so children can stay entertained while adults get in a workout.  Rock Creek also has a sand volleyball court.  Nearby are the Coalton Creek and Rock Creek Regional Trail Systems.  From Coalton Creek, mountain bikers can expect a solid workout as they pedal miles of trails, some of which connect to Boulder.
