Winter is (almost) here! As I’m writing this my kids are getting ready for Thanksgiving Break, there’s early morning frost in our front yard, and we just sorted all our winter gear in anticipation of a storm next week. It seems like just yesterday we were excited for our cold and rainy spring to end and getting ready for summer!
If you’re curious about fun winter events around Denver, be sure to check out Rebecca Fawcett’s Holiday activity guide:
Here’s a little excerpt from Rebecca about her excitement for the Holidays:
“I love our holiday traditions and sprinkling in new experiences each year. Last year I got to share the joy of The Nutcracker with my then 3-year-old daughter and seeing it through her eyes was pure magic. She remembers it vividly and keeps talking about when we go again this year.”
Rebecca features Camp Christmas, the Polar Express, The Giving Tree at Stanley Marketplace, Blossoms of Light, Christmas in Color, and so much more in her post.
And since time seemingly moves faster and faster, ski season is in full swing! Check out Lisa Palladino’s Ski Guide here:
Also, don’t forget to check out another new Scoop post from Lisa about Small Business Saturday. Here at the Scoop one of our core missions is to help support small businesses in Central Park and surrounding neighborhoods around Denver.
We regularly feature over 100+ small businesses on the Scoop each year, and we always do this for free to help support the community.
Lisa has all sorts of great small business ideas in her post:
Last but not least, here’s another new Scoop post from Rebecca:
Rebecca and General Manager of Stanley Marketplace, Ally Fredeen (pictured above), share suggestions for where to shop for friends and family and cross off your list by shopping small this year.

There are currently 53 active non-builder listings in Central Park. This is down a bit from about a month ago when I ran numbers for my last neighborhood update (69 active listings then), but inventory remains robust with a lot of opportunities for buyers.
This week we saw 4 new non-builder listings and “coming soons” in the neighborhood.
Right now there are 10 homes that are pending (meaning they are under contract, but have not yet closed).
6 homes closed this past week.
Disclaimer: Our Friday real estate updates are meant to be a “roundup” type post where we discuss all listings in Central Park, not just our own. It’s our way of making sure we follow the market closely and we share it with the Scoop readers because we know many of you like to track real estate in the area as well. Many of the listings in these posts are not our company’s listings and we wanted to mention that here to make sure it’s clear. Focus and its agents make no representations, warranties, or guarantees as to the accuracy or completeness of any information in this post. Please confirm all information with your own advisors and do not rely on this post. Thanks for reading the Scoop!
