The old real estate adage admonishes “location, location, location”. But as trends in the nature of work, education and recreation move us out of large public spaces and into more intimate community spaces, our home and immediate surrounding neighborhood are even more critical to our well-being, lifestyle and work-life balance. The Banning Lewis Ranch community updates the “location” adage to incorporate multiple spaces, events and activities to generate community interaction and create opportunities for neighbors to become friends and extended family members. “Location” is just the beginning of the home and community of your dreams.
As the #1 selling new home community in the Pikes Peak Region for an astonishing 8 years running, Banning Lewis Ranch has created a unique community that offers homebuyers more than just a great location and fantastic recreational amenities such as more than 75 acres of trails and parks and community pools and rec centers. With four neighborhood parks, a community park between the school and the community center, and open space areas called pasillos, each home in Banning Lewis Ranch is within just two blocks of a park, trail or open space.
Beyond the spaces themselves, Banning Lewis Ranch strives to provide key touchpoints for community members to interact with each other on multiple levels and to develop lifelong connections. Through its thoughtful juxtaposition of multi-generational home options to well-placed and cared for parks and recreation opportunities to a robust trail system that provides neighborhood connectivity, Banning Lewis Ranch offers a multi-layered approach to creating and supporting community.
In addition to providing the physical venues for interaction, Banning Lewis Ranch works with the YMCA of the Pikes Peak Region-run Ranch House to sponsor a regular summer concert series, farmers market and food truck series as well as special events to celebrate the holidays. The concert series includes a wide variety of family-friendly music guaranteed to please every musical taste and a dozen food trucks at each concert ensure that even the pickiest palate can find something tasty! The annual 4th of July concert and fireworks show is a huge fan favorite and brings folks from around the region to enjoy the great music and fabulous fireworks show presented by Banning Lewis Ranch.
Banning Lewis Ranch residents are treated to a picnic Memorial Day weekend as well as a popular pig-roast in September. The annual Easter Egg Hunt in April, Fall Festival in October and Holiday Cookies with Santa event in December round out the regular events. A new event in 2022 will partner with Colorado Springs Sports Corporation to bring a mini-Labor Day Liftoff to the Banning Lewis Ranch Pavilion the Thursday before Labor Day. The Banning Lewis Ranch/YMCA Ranch House team is constantly innovating, adding and improving events to ensure a wide variety of activities, events and celebrations! These events are great opportunities to celebrate community with friends and family and bring neighbors together to create lifelong memories.
