Scroll down to view the latest listings in Monument and Tri-Lakes.
The Tri-Lakes area, located about 20 minutes north of Colorado Springs along I-25, consists of the communities of Monument, Woodmoor, and Palmer Lake, each named after the closest lake. Tri-Lakes extends from the Rocky Mountain foothills and across Monument Hill into Black Forest. Together, these communities provide all of the conveniences of a larger city with the solitude of living further from the Springs.
Monument stretches south farther than the other Tri-Lakes areas, butting up against Colorado Springs at Baptist Road. A variety of homes are available throughout the area, ranging from larger, newly-built homes on the bluffs to well-established neighborhoods, all with easy access to the entire Front Range. With a local calendar of events open to the community all year long, the amenities in Monument include several reservable outdoor areas such as Dirty Woman Creek Park, Limbach Park, and Santa Fe Baseball Fields. The Town of Monument Newsletter is produced every month and gives a quick glimpse at upcoming events, safety reminders, and tools to stay connected. The largest of the three Tri-Lakes communities, Monument offers the most modern experience, hosting large businesses and chain restaurants. However, these locations are a short drive from the entire region and can be enjoyed by all.
Woodmoor, beginning in 1971, is a community of around 3,000 housing lots northwest of Monument that are managed by the Woodmoor Improvement Association. With little new construction and a long-standing neighborhood in place, Woodmoor offers buyers the chance to join an upstanding community that has only improved with time. Several common areas have been established for resident use. Wild Duck Pond and Lower Twin Pond are both stocked annually for local fishers. The Woodmoor Community Center, available for rental to both residents and the public, includes tables and chairs, a kitchen facility, and deck space for any scheduled event. The Country Club at Woodmoor provides even more amenities for an annual fee, including a championship golf course, heated indoor tennis courts, indoor and outdoor pools with lessons and lifeguard training, a two-floor fitness center, and several elegant dining options.
West of I-25 and stretching along Highway 105, Palmer Lake is the third community in the Tri-Lakes area and has more of a small-town feel than the rest of the area. Recreational areas abound all around Palmer Lake. Centennial Park offers a volleyball court, disc golf course, and Santa Fe Trail trailhead. Smaller open areas include Columbine Park, Glen Park, and the Village Green at the center of town. The Palmer Lake Historical Society provides a glimpse into the area's colorful history, while the Tri-Lakes Center for the Arts offers almost weekly entertainment. Several eateries offer local flavors all along the central route through Palmer Lake. Rock House Ice Cream, Speed Trap Bistro, and Bella Panini make up some of the most popular stops.
Lewis-Palmer School District 38 provides K-12 education to the students living throughout the Tri-Lakes region. The district maintains five elementary schools, one middle school, and two high schools implementing programs to meet the unique needs of each and every student. Charter and private schools are available in the area, as well, such as Monument Academy and St. Peter Catholic School.
