Copperleaf Arboretum Pool and Clubhouse Questions
Do Copperleaf Homeowners Association Residents Have The Use Of Any Recreational Amenities (Pool, Tennis Courts, Clubhouse)?
The Copperleaf Homeowners Association maintains The Arboretum, which consists of two pools, a tot playground, a clubhouse, and a half-court basketball/hockey playing area. There are no tennis courts. Several recreational facilities are also available in nearby locations for residents by the Arapahoe Park and Recreation District. For information about these facilities, please click here.
As the Copperleaf community develops, the Copperleaf Homeowners Association will maintain several themed parks with recreational amenities:
The Arboretum consists of an approximately four-acre complex which includes a community center, a 25-yard pool with six lap lanes, and a large, "zero-entry" youth pool with a Splash Park and various interactive water-play features. Additional features at this complex include a tot playground and picnic structure located adjacent to the pool fence. A half-court basketball/hockey playing area is scheduled for construction in late 2008. The Arboretum complex opened in June 2008 and is located adjacent to the Aspen Neighborhood.
Presidential Park, constructed in 2014, includes a tot playground and cherry trees providing the natural tie to the nation's first President. In keeping with the cherry tree theme, this park is located in the Cherry Neighborhood.
Geology Park, constructed in 2007 in the Hawthorn Neighborhood, offers children and adults an opportunity to enjoy the natural elements, including a rock climbing wall and rock outcroppings.
Prehistoric Park, located in the Linden Neighborhood, includes dinosaur climbers, featured dinosaur fossils, and a themed playground for children.
Ecological Park, constructed in 2014 in the Cottonwood Neighborhood, features several animal climbers for children.
Ponderosa Park, anchored by ponderosa pines in the Ponderosa Neighborhood, features "wild west" plantings as well as a family-friendly playground "corral" with cow climbers and a western shelter.
Located within the Arapahoe Park and Recreation District, the proposed Copperleaf Community Park on Picadilly Street will offer a wide range of activities, which may include playing fields and picnic areas and numerous trailheads. It will also provide convenient access to the Copperleaf Wildland Trail Open Space Corridor, a natural system of more than ten miles of natural and concrete trails. These trails and open space areas will be maintained by the Arapahoe Park and Recreation District (APRD) and East Cherry Creek Valley Water & Sanitation District (ECCV). Additional APRD recreational facilities in nearby locations are available for resident use. For information about these facilities, please click here.

How Does My Key FOB Work?

The FOB is programmed to open the main pool gate ONLY during pool open hours. If you arrive prior to 10 A.M. or later than 8 P.M., your key FOB will not permit entry.
Resident key FOBs will only allow access to The Arboretum pools and not to the clubhouse.
