Windsor Gardens opened in 1962 as Colorado’s first shared ownership community. Since then thousands of active adults have enjoyed the beautiful 143 acre site with its pool, clubhouse, golf course and walking/biking trails along the Highline Canal. Low-rise condominium buildings are spread across the grounds.
The neighborhood spans from Colorado Boulevard east to Holly between Evans and Mississippi avenues. Virginia Village is “kind of one of those largely undiscovered jewels in the city.”
