Housing: There are a variety of home styles available in McKay Landing – most are 2-story but with some ranch homes scattered throughout. Some homes include garages that face the street, while others feature the alleyway style garage. Backyards come with the smaller split rail fences which makes it a little easier to get to know your neighbors; and some residents feel it’s much more attractive and open than the traditional 6 foot wood fences, you might find in other neighborhoods. Prices most often start in the $400’s.
Restaurants and Shopping: The newest shopping center “Shops at Quail Creek” is within walking distance of many homes (or a very short drive) to the southeast of the community at 136th Ave and Zuni St. You can get just about anything you’ll need here with the biggest King Soopers grocery store in existence (over one third larger than the average store with a whopping 100,000 square feet!), a gas station, liquor store, ice cream shop, fast food that includes Jack in the Box and Taco Bell as well as sit down restaurants like pizza, Corona’s Mexican Grill and Kira Sushi restaurant. The shopping center also includes a bank and dental office.
Also a very short drive away at 144th Ave and I-25 is the Orchard Town Center, another newer and expansive shopping center that includes stores like REI, Ross, Victoria’s Secret, Old Navy and many more! Click here to get the entire list. And don’t forget some of the fabulous restaurants there like the Cheeky Monk Belgian Beer Cafe, Asti D’ Italia – Fine Italian Restaurant, 3 Margaritas, Marco’s Pizza, etc. There’s something there to fit everyone’s tastes!
Family Fitness: A community pool is available to McKay Landing residents in the summer for all sorts of water enjoyment. The 105 year old, 62 acre McKay Lake sits on 135 acres of open space right across the street from the neighborhood. It’s considered the 2nd largest lake in Westminster and features a 1.5 mile walking trail that surrounds it. Many residents spend time enjoying nature and tranquility at this lake while bird watching the ducks, geese, bald eagles, white pelicans and redwing blackbirds. Lifetime Fitness, a massive gym that sits just north of the Orchard Town Center at 148th Ave and I-25, could become your home away from home with both indoor and outdoor pools, a pampering spa center, a weight room, fitness room, yoga room, kid’s center, basketball courts, rock wall, pilates room, and a cafe.
According to a recent survey by qazzoo.com a whopping 42% of home buyers complained about a “lack of timely follow up by the real estate agent.” I can promise you, that will NEVER happen with me! I return phone calls and emails 7 days a week.

Quirks: Broomfield’s McKay Landing prides itself on its unwavering focus on building an old fashioned community where neighbors know each other’s names and look out for each other. One cancer survivor said if it hadn’t been for the dedicated support of the community, she doesn’t know how she could have endured her ordeal. Bunco nights, margarita get-togethers and block wide BBQ’s are the norm.
Major Street Boundaries: 136th Ave to the south, Zuni St to the east, 144th Ave to the north.
