Barefoot Lakes is a serene, nature-centric community with a certain Goldilocks quality: it’s just right in so many ways. A privacy that feels remote and removed, but with all the benefits of access and activity when you want it. Far enough away from the hustle and bustle to feel peaceful, but still conveniently close to the community amenities in Firestone, Longmont and Denver. A variety of stimulating environments and activities are right outside your door, but the homes are so beautiful and well-appointed that you may just want to stay indoors.
Whether you’re a couple looking to downsize or a growing young family, Barefoot Lakes offers a lifestyle and floor plans that will meet your needs, providing you with the perfect amount of space in a place that just feels right. The only thing you have to do is let your day unfold naturally at Barefoot Lakes.
The right place The Havens neighborhood has it all
Tucked behind The Cove amenity center, nestled among native prairie land, you’ll find The Havens neighborhood of Barefoot Lakes. Community access is simple from this little oasis, but upon arriving, you still feel miles away from it all.
To add to the natural appeal of The Havens neighborhood, two new parks are opening this summer. Hideaway Park is the smaller of the two, but what it lacks in size, it makes up for in fun. The green space at Havens Park is perfect for a picnic or a game of frisbee. Forgot the frisbee? No problem. Try the pre-installed lawn games like cornhole, ladder golf, and can jam. Hideaway Park is the destination for those looking to arrive and enjoy, without having to bring anything along – everything you need for a fun time is already there.
Another new park in this neighborhood is the namesake, Havens Park. Designed in the style of Denver’s expansive green spaces, Havens Park features a kid’s playground that will keep the children entertained for hours and a spacious lawn with beautiful, manicured grass that invites you to lay out a picnic in the sun after playing fetch with your dog. Trees line the edges of the park so you can always cool off in the shade when needed.
But you aren’t limited to the parks in your neighborhood – the world of Barefoot Lakes is your playground. Hop on a community trail lined with native grasses that meanders from your doorstep, behind The Cove amenity center, and into WaterSide Park.
Choose your own adventure – the options are endless.

The sun is setting on summer as vacations end and the routine begins again. Soon, the water activities at Peninsula Park and The Cove pool will come to a close, and Barefoot Lakes will settle into the beauty and quiet of autumn. The natural landscape will change, as it always does, as the verdant greens of summer shift into rich hues of yellow and umber. New wildlife will appear as they gather food for winter and some migratory birds will move on. And The Cove’s fitness rooms, fireplace and coffee bar offer a welcoming warmth to your day.
With a new home at Barefoot Lakes, you’ll have a front row seat to every changing season – a view that inspires you to meet each day with gratitude. For more information, visit barefootlakes.com.
