Thank you to everyone who came out to the Pumpkin Fall Event! Despite the snow and frigid temperatures we had a great turnout. We are happy everyone was able to come out and enjoy the event! Thank you to our sponsor Jen Cronk with 1320 homes for having Funky Brewster Coffee Catering out there to serve the delicious warm drinks! Thank you to comforts of home for still coming out in the weather to serve some yummy breakfast. Lastly thank you to the Wheatlands Board for their continued support in helping plan and making these community events happen.

We look forward to hopefully being able to offer some type of Holiday event in December.
Community Information

Community Survey – Thank you to everyone who took the time last month to give us feedback on our annual community survey. We look forward to gathering the results and sharing them in our year end communication. It takes a village and without your feedback we couldn’t improve. We appreciate your helping making Wheatlands a wonderful place to live.

Clubhouse information – We continue to keep our clubhouse open for our residents knowing it is important to have a space for our residents to use when several other facilities are closed. Tri-County health has recently changed their guidelines on group gatherings which our clubhouse will adhere to as well. For more information or questions you can call the YMCA office at
720-274-5759 or email
Office Hours are Monday-Friday 9am-1pm and Wednesday evenings from 4-8pm
Office is located at the Southlands Mall:
6295 S. Main St Unit 104 (next to massage envy)
Aurora, CO 80016

District Landscape Information – We have increased our contract with Cox Landscaping to include additional trash can emptying throughout the Wheatlands District including the clubhouse, walking paths and the community park.  They will be emptying the bins twice a week through the winter months and it will increase to three times a week in the spring/summer/fall. If you have a rental or a gathering at the parks we ask that large items be taken and thrown away instead of just setting by the trash cans. We also ask if you have large amounts of trash you bring your own trash bags and remove the trash. Thank you for your cooperation on this.

Park Information – The Wheatlands Metro District is pleased to announce we are beginning Phase 2 of the Wheatlands Park Project. The design is shown below and will include: a full size basketball court, multi use sport court (for pickleball or half basketball), yard games, ping pong tables, new perennial beds, picnic tables and hammock area. We have submitted the design to the City of Aurora for approval and construction will begin next year. We look forward to completing the park and having additional outdoor space for our community to enjoy.

Wheatlands Recreation Center
The Wheatlands YMCA is coming to Wheatlands in May 2020. 
The YMCA is excited to join your community as a place of strength, connection and health.

Through your metro district dues, Wheatlands’ residents will receive a free family membership to the new YMCA.

Membership includes fitness facility, fitness classes, swimming and access to Ys nationwide. Additional fees will be required for programs such as swim lessons, swim team, youth sports, summer day camp, specialty fitness classes and personal training — all at the member rate. 
To access the new Y, residents will be required to register with the YMCA and complete any necessary waivers. 
We are thrilled to bring our new YMCA to the Wheatlands community.

Look for more information in January 2021 with a grand opening expected in May 2021.
