Table Mesa South Boulder Community
Driving south down Broadway, it is hard to miss the pinkish building tucked away in the flatirons. Not only is NCAR, the National Center for Atmospheric Research, a Boulder landmark, but it signals a distinct community in Boulder. Broadly known as South Boulder, this community has become more thought of as Table Mesa.
South Boulder encompasses an old 50's ranch style Boulder. Homes are older and more affordable. Town homes and condos are also sprinkled in, making it a reasonable area for young families and students alike.
Well known for its highly academic schools such as Fairview High School, the Table Mesa community is a very family-oriented section of Boulder. Parks, a recreation center and hiking on the Mesa Trail all make this area welcoming to family fun. If you're looking for a nice walk, Viele Lake is pleasant and enjoyed by multiple forms of wildlife. Residents can also have a day of fun playing frisbee golf at Harlow Platts Park or swimming at South Boulder Rec Center.
Most of the area's local shopping can be done at the Table Mesa Shopping Center. A King Sooper's, restaurants and retail stores complete the strip mall. South Boulder is also a great location if you have to commute to Louisville, Lafayette or Erie. While South Boulder is easily accessed by the highway, traffic can be avoided by using alternative routes such as Marshall Road and South Boulder Road.
