Everyone loves this classic Boulder neighborhood. Wedged in between Mapleton and Wonderland Hills, the Newlands neighborhood is a beautiful one that officially includes North Boulder park and its baseball diamonds, playground and sheltered picnic areas. Of course, it also doesn’t hurt that Newlands backs up to the foothills and offers homeowners Mount Sanitas as a backdrop.
This neighborhood was originally developed in 1871 by the Newland family. It started as a large orchard and as time went on, was divided up for sale. Many lots in the Newlands neighborhood still bear the apple trees that the Newland family planted many years ago. In 1922, Boulder Community Hospital opened and, located in the middle of the Newlands, presented itself as an anchor for the surrounding neighborhood. Although the Ideal Market probably gets that designation now.
In terms of housing, expect to see a nice range of architectural styles, everything from post-war bungalows to sleek modern rebuilds.
