About Superior

Superior has roots in cool mining and today is predominantly residentially-focused with great shopping located on the outskirts of the town's largest residential development, which is named Rock Creek Ranch.  Rock Creek is a master-planned community complete with two pools, 4 parks, 12 playgrounds, and 27 miles of walking paths.   Two Boulder Valley School District public schools, Superior Elementary and Eldorado K-8,  are also located within the community.  There are approximately 2,700 single-family homes and 1,800 townhomes and/or condominiums located within Rock Creek.  Residents are eagerly anticipating the completion of the town's development of a proper downtown district, known as Downtown Superior, which will include a pedestrian promenade lined with restaurants, breweries, coffee shops, medical facilities, and retail.  Six residential builders are currently offering a variety of single-family and townhome-style residences within the development as well.  See our related blog post for more detail.  Folks are drawn to the small-town, family-friendly dynamic of Superior while also benefitting from easy access to Boulder (10 minutes) and Denver (25 minutes) via Highway 36 and also to Denver International Airport (40 minutes) via the Northwest Parkway toll road.

Learn More About Living in Superior


History

Similar to Louisville, the city was founded in the late 1800’s as a coal mining town.  The city’s name is a reference to the superior quality of coal mined in the region.  Superior evolved into a ranch and farm community when mining dissipated in the mid-1900’s.
 

Layout

Superior is located southwest of Boulder, on the west side of Highway 36.  It is adjacent to Louisville.  The city’s residential section is located between a small shopping district on the south end of town close to the Flatirons Crossing Mall and a large shopping district in the north east corner of town.   Most of the 4,500 residences in Superior are located in the Rock Creek neighborhood.  Northeast Superior is undergoing major expansion with the development of Downtown Superior.  This new master planned area will provide Superior with a dedicated downtown district complete with medical, retail, business and recreation facilities as well as approximately 1,400 residences.    The Sports Stable was the first facility to be built and includes three indoor ice rinks, a strength training gym, a pro shop, physical therapists, a restaurant, and a coffee house.  Part of the city’s 27 mile trail system connects with Louisville’s and ultimately parts of South Boulder while extensive paved paths connect to multiple parks. 


Commute Time

Denver: 25 minutes
Boulder: 10 minutes
Denver International Airport: 40 minutes
Vail (i.e.  ski mountain towns): 2 hours


Culture

Festivals, Events & Fun

In the spring, Superior hosts the coveted Morgul Bike Race.  Residents attend the annual 4th of July Parade and Pancake Festival in the summer.  The Chili festival in the fall and the Count the Lights festival during the holiday season rounds out the city’s events in the fall and winter months. 


Healthy Living

Residents of Superior enjoy the outdoors.  The city maintains 594 acres of parks, green space, open space and trails.  The Rock Creek Ranch development alone provide 27 miles of walking paths that snakes through residences and leads to the Coalton Trailhead, the large Flatiron Crossing Shopping Mall,  a small shopping center offering a Safeway food market, and ultimately to Downtown Superior once the area is completed.   Popular hiking trails include Coalton Trail (6-mile out and back trail with unobstructed views of the Flatirons), Meadowlark Trail (5.4-mile out and back trail that connects to the Boulder Trail system), Flatirons Vista Trail (3-mile loop that offers both open and wooded hiking that connects to trails in South Boulder), and the Coal Creek Trail (a 14-mile trail that connects Superior to neighboring towns of Louisville, Lafayette, and Erie).  Superior also has direct access to the 18 mile US 36 Bikeway, which allows cyclists the opportunity to ride from Boulder to just north of Denver.  Residents with dogs enjoy the dog park located within Rock Creek Ranch at Autrey Park.  Many youth sport activities are also conveniently located either within Superior or Rock Creek Ranch in particular including the neighborhood's summer swim team, the Rock Creek Flyers, YMCA soccer & teeball, and ice skating/hockey lessons at the Sports Stable.

For indoor exercise, many residents of Superior utilize the Onyx-level Life Time Athletic Flatirons facility, which was renovated in 2016,  as the Louisville Recreation Center, which was renovated in 2018.  The Sports Stable is a mecca for hockey, soccer, lacrosse and sports enthusiasts in general.  The 150,000 square foot facility offers three ice rinks (two of which are NHL-size), a full turf field, batting cages, adult fitness, cross-fit training, basketball, volleyball, virtual sports.  The Sports Stable is home to the area's preeminent Hockey Clubs.  A number of other shops and services are co-located at this facility including: physical therapy, massage, a barbershop, an Italian restaurant, and a coffee shop.
