Hi all - My family is considering a move to Gunbarrel (from Longmont) and I was hoping to get an idea of whether there are many families with young kiddos in the neighborhood (We have a 5 and 1 year old). And whether there are many family friendly (or kid focused) events (I've heard about the movie/music night from this page...) ... See MoreSee Less

It’s a great neighborhood ( shh, don’t tell anyone)Lots of awesome young families.

We moved from Longmont to Gunbarrel in 1990. Raised both our kids here, now their children come here frequently for daycare. Quiet neighborhood, park, and access to the LoBo trail are all great. Also, not in any city limits. Save big $ when purchasing a car or having anything delivered to your home.

There is no better neighborhood to raise your kids…like no other, simply the best!

Agree with Theo!

Chili Cookoff Update:
After much thought and discussion, GEHOA has decided to postpone the Chili Cookoff this year. The poll did show in favor of having the event with masks, but COVID transmission level in Boulder County is high (see link) and we do not want to take any risks with our dear neighbors. Sharing food from common pots (or food bars/buffets) is still not happening at restaurants and aligning our own neighborhood practices with public health protocols seems like the right thing to do.

We still have three Summer Saturdays of music and movies to enjoy in the park. We hope you'll join us there, mindful of distance, and masked if you feel more comfortable that way. 鈾ワ笍
