"Flagstaff - Gateway to Chautauqua"
Homes in this neighborhood are considered the best of Boulder. The reason is their proximity to the gem of Boulder, Chautauqua park. This park, which was established in 1898, is comprised of the original 84 acres where the Auditorium and Dining Hall are the main attractions and where Boulder residents flock throughout the year for community gatherings and cultural events galore. Flagstaff neighborhood sits at the base of the Boulder Flatirons and some of the best hiking trails in Colorado start at the Chautauqua parking lot. Flagstaff is also bordered to the East by the University of Colorado and to the North by Pearl Street. All of this is within easy walking distance of this prime neighborhood where homes range from 900k and up. This is not the quietest neighborhood again due to the proximity to the University and as you travel North or East from Flagstaff you come into the prime student housing which is in the midst of frat houses and party central for CU-Boulder which is known as the Hill. This area does tend to have a bit more petty crime due to its proximity to the Hill, but the closer you go to the base of Flagstaff and Baseline Road the quieter and more exclusive the neighborhood becomes.
