Newlands is a popular and classic Boulder, Colorado, neighborhood known for its warm, welcoming community.

Welcome to Newlands

A classic family neighborhood nestled along the base of Mount Sanitas
Centered around North Boulder Park and tucked along the foot of Mount Sanitas, this beautiful neighborhood is a mixture of classic brick homes, farm cottages, and luxury, new construction builds. Much of the northern part of town is highly rustic, with large lots and apple orchards dating back over 100 years.

Newlands was established in the 1870s as one large apple orchard. Eventually, the land was divided up for sale, but residents and visitors can still see the original apple trees dotting the community today. Newlands is very walkable, and it is common to see families out together, walking, jogging, biking, and spending time with pets.

In the winter, the Nordic Club ensures everyone enjoys a plethora of winter activities.

For a day of moderate and scenic hiking, head to Mount Sanitas Trailhead. This well-maintained trail has two loop options, which result in a two to three-hour hike. The trails are worth the climb, as both sites at their peaks boast incredible views.
