The west Denver suburb of Bow Mar is a small municipality. Bordered by Denver on the north and Littleton on the east, Bow Mar is close to the big city but maintains a peaceful, protected community of its own. First incorporated in 1958, Bow Mar has grown into a popular club-like town. All home sites are at least one acre and afford expansive views of the Rocky Mountain foothills.
Local amenities include the private Bow Mar Lake, where one can sail at the yacht club and swim off the sand beach. Fishing and picnicking provide opportunities for family fun. Nearby, a dedicated bird sanctuary provides a wonderful outdoor experience. In general, Bow Mar residents are active, and the homeowners association serves to maintain the social, inclusive atmosphere at all communal sports facilities, including the lake, tennis courts and walking trail.
The closest shopping districts to Bow Mar are in neighboring downtown Littleton or Bear Valley. Visitors here must be accompanied by Bow Mar residents at community functions.
