Mead | Colorado
Mead is an exceptional place to raise a family with a variety of recreational activities, community events, and local shops and restaurants. Many of the parks in Mead offer more than the standard small playground or field; Founders Park, for example,
provides a playground, a basketball court, tennis court, and other unique amenities.
Residents can spend time appreciating nature at the many ponds and trails throughout Mead, as well as at Highland Lake. Throughout the summer Mead hosts a number of community events, such as the Fishing Derby, Bike Parade, and Movies in the Park. Movies in the Park is especially loved among locals as a time to gather together and enjoy food trucks and games before the main event: an outdoor movie.
While Mead is a small town, there is a cluster of restaurants and shops with a local favorite being the Red Rooster Restaurant for breakfast. If you decide to try it out for yourself, the giant, buttery pancakes are a thing to behold!
Mead has a population of 4,500 and is located near the larger city of Longmont.
