The Dunes Park Neighborhood

The Dunes Park neighborhood is a covenant-controlled community that is located at the northwest corner of the intersection of Highway 85 and 112th Avenue in Commerce City. The neighborhood is comprised of 250 single family homes and 182 townhome units.

Recreational amenities within the neighborhood include a pool, park and walking path (on the north end of the neighborhood).

The neighborhood is surrounded by an abundance of open space, farm fields and undeveloped land but is also less than a 30-minute drive away from downtown Denver and the Denver International Airport. In addition, the neighborhood is less than one mile from the eastern bank of the Platte River and occasionally becomes the nesting grounds for our national bird, the bald eagle!

The Metro District

The Riverdale Dunes Metropolitan District No 1 (the District) is a quasi-municipal corporation and political subdivision of the State of Colorado. The District's boundaries wholly encompass the Dunes Park neighborhood and the District's board of directors is elected solely by Colorado registered voters living and/or owning property within the Dunes Park neighborhood. The purpose of the District is to (1) collect property taxes to repay the debt incurred to finance the development of the neighborhood, (2) maintain the open spaces and recreational facilities within the neighborhood, (3) monitor and enforce the Dunes Park restrictive covenants and maintenance standards applicable to every private lot and (4) provide architectural review services in accordance with the neighborhood's restrictive covenants.

As of January 1, 2013, the District assumed the responsibilities previously performed by the neighborhood's master HOA (i.e. Dunes master Owners Association, Inc.).
