A relatively new community, Pueblo West is a covenant-controlled planned housing development. The arid, rising land northwest of Pueblo proper offers views of Pikes Peak to the north and the Spanish Peaks to the south.
This growing community, situated off U.S. 50, offers a surprising amount of conveniences for visitors. The hub of the community is located at McCullouch and Joe Martinez boulevards, where a mini civic center area houses a few restaurants. In addition, there are about a dozen lodging facilities ranging from hotels to B&Bs in the greater Pueblo area. Downtown Pueblo, just eight miles east, offers a diverse mix of eateries, a restored historic district, a riverwalk area and shopping districts.
With annexations, Pueblo West contains about 26,000 acres of contiguous lands. The community is also situated just north of Lake Pueblo State Park, which contains a lake suitable for boating, swimming, sailing and fishing. Maintained campsites are also available, in addition to miles of hiking and biking trails, including a local greenway that runs all the way to downtown Pueblo.
Pueblo West also has a wide variety of outdoor activities. Approximately, 4,600 acres have been reserved for neighborhood parks, playgrounds and an open greenbelt area.
