Health & Wellness
RidgeGate is community living designed and built for vitality. Everyone who works, plays, and lives here is inspired to make healthy choices on a daily basis.
TRAILS, PARKS & OPEN SPACE
RidgeGate offers more than 1,000 acres of parks, trails, natural habitat and open space. So put on your trail shoes and explore the natural wonders. Your go-to moderate hike is the Willow Creek trail, aka the Bluffs Trail. It takes you to the peak of the bluffs, so you can see the expanse of the front range to the south and the north, as well as the downtown Denver sky.
NETWORK OF TRAILS
If you want to get on your bicycle and go a bit longer, you can hook up with the East-West Regional Trail along the bluffs. About 20 miles of this trail are complete, spanning from western Highlands Ranch to RidgeGate Parkway. When completed, it will span 26 miles from the Highline Canal in Highlands Ranch to the Cherry Creek Regional Trail system in Parker.
Bluffs Regional Park also offers more trails and overlooks, and is immediately adjacent to RidgeGate on the western border of our community.
PARKS AND RECREATION
Playtime in the parks is fun and easy here. The 5-acre Belvedere Park offers a playground, canopy, shade trees, plaza and wifi. The 10-acre Prairie Sky Park, located to the west of the Lone Tree Rec Center, features a ball field. Lincoln Commons Park adds four additional acres of open space, with jogging and walking trails, and a pedestrian bridge from Commonwealth Street to the Lincoln Commons retail district. The new Promenade Park, between the Bellwether Place urban villas and the Rows at RidgeGate townhomes, completes the park corridor that runs from the top of the bluffs down to Lincoln Avenue’s Leaf pedestrian bridge, heading north to sidewalks and trails in north Lone Tree.
Lone Tree Recreation Center
You can easily walk or bike to this world-class facility.
No matter where you live in RidgeGate, you can easily walk or bike to the Lone Tree Rec Center and take advantage of this world-class, $17 million facility. Pretty much every sport, gym and group class obsession you have is offered within the 54,000 square foot center. Kids love the indoor aquatic center with slides, a lazy river and lap pool. Day camps and special events are scheduled throughout the year for children and families. Bring your kids, or take some time for yourself to be good to your body, mind, and soul.
One of our community’s healthiest assets is the Sky Ridge Medical Center, located on a 57-acre campus in the heart of RidgeGate. Here you’ll find state-of-the-art medical technology and care, including a Level II Trauma Center, and the region’s top healthcare professionals. A recent $107 million expansion provided 100 more beds, four additional operating rooms, a women’s health outpatient medical office building and a multi-level parking garage. The expansion also added around 300 new jobs to the RidgeGate community and the city of Lone Tree.
OTHER MEDICAL FACILITIES
RidgeGate is also home to the nationally-renowned Colorado Center for Reproductive Medicine, one of the nation’s leading fertility clinics, as well as the Integrated Ear, Nose and Throat clinic. A new medical office building is also underway in the Sky Ridge medical district, located at the roundabout where RidgeGate Parkway meets Park Meadows Boulevard.
