Columbine Valley, Colorado

The Town of Columbine Valley is a Statutory Town located in western Arapahoe County, Colorado, United States. The town population was 1256 at the 2010 United States Census. The median income for a household in the town was $130,417, and the median income for a family was $149,375.

A spirit of pioneering, neighborliness and fun characterized the early community, which grew at a moderate pace. The changeover from a farm to a suburban atmosphere was not immediate. Today they are proud of their tree-lined neighborhoods, beautiful surroundings and a population that is full of energy and optimism.

Unique for Colorado in 1955 was the establishment of a championship golf course surrounded and interspersed among its fairways by some 200 home sites.  The 17 founding members selected as a beautiful, natural setting the 295-acre Heckendorf Farm located along the South Platte River Valley west of the city of Littleton. The area offered an open view of the mountains, a plateau and a winding river valley, all of which reflects a feeling of quiet spaciousness. The State flower was used to name the project “Columbine Country Club.

On August 15, 1959 the Secretary of State of Colorado signed the incorporation papers of the Town of Columbine Valley. Probably the most catastrophic event to affect Columbine Valley was the great flood of the South Platte River on June 16, 1965.  Approximately 25 Columbine homes were either destroyed or severely damaged by this “100 Year” flood.  The financial loss was estimated to be $2 million in Columbine Valley, with no flood insurance. 

The outward appearance of the town today is one of quiet, peaceful existence, and the residents know that to be true.  It is said that the person who works in downtown Denver, no matter what the daily frustrations may be experiences a feeling of relief and restfulness as he enters the gates of Columbine at the end of the day. It is a quiet neighborhood with quick access to anything you need (shopping, entertainment) yet has it's own privacy away from the city life.
