Wonderland Hill Neighborhood Boulder Colorado


Wonderland Lake is the north border, we think of Broadway as the eastern edge, but two smaller neighborhoods fill that space.

Wonderland Hill terminates at the southern end at Linden, which is the route up

to neighborhoods like Pine Brook Hills and Boulder Heights.

My Take On This Neighborhood: 

There are still some reasonable values in Wonderland, although they may not be the ‘bargains’ you can find in Martin Acres, and parts of the general Table Mesa area. Nonetheless, there’s still a lot of home and land for your dollar in this neighborhood. Yes, prices are higher here than some Boulder neighborhoods. However, there is a reason. Let’s explore together so you can get on the inside track! Expect prices to go up soon given the high sales volume in the Boulder area.


The Wonderland Hill neighborhood started out about 30-40 years ago as a new

development with a mix of condos and single-family homes. One of Boulder’s first ‘high-end’ suburbs, fueled by IBM executives and others looking for a quiet setting with a close-in feel to Boulder.

One of the Spectacular features

of the Wonderland Hill Neighborhood is Wonderland Lake, and the trails all around and through the area.

What’s New Today: 

Remodeling, and some rebuilds. Since Wonderland Hill has many homes built one or more decades ago, and values are strong, the biggest trend I’ve seen in this neighborhood is remodeling. With many people ‘staying put’, instead of moving, or purchasing homes which have been lived in by the same people for many, many years, quite a few homes need to be updated. The value is there, it’s a reasonable investment to update/ remodel, whether you’re buying or live there currently.

Local Highlights: 

This area is full of trails, parks and other amenities such as neighborhood pools, tennis, etc. The biggest highlight is that

Wonderland is immediately adjacent to the trails along the hogback north towards Dakota Ridge and south into central Boulder.
