  •  Interesting Features
    The 'shantytown' around back is interesting in that there are units with artifacts left behind (one full of clothes, another full of shoes and toys). There is a house on the far end of the back area where, presumably, the groundskeeper (for lack of a better term) lives. The units along this side of the little development are in better shape than the rest and have evidence of people living in them (a bbq, kid's bikes, a cat).

     Future Plans
    The former dog track is now the site of phase I of Colorado Motorsports Park, which is currently a 1/3 mile dirt oval track where the dog track used to be. It appears that the facilities are being reused to this end. Eventually the track will include a 'master planned' road course and additional facilities.

    12.21.2023 - The 65 acre site is / will be home to single family homes, row homes, duplexes, luxury condos, and retailers.
