Access to recreational activities, stunning mountain views, and peaceful retreats from the city in this convenient, newer area of Colorado Springs.

Northgate, Monument, & Northern El Paso County

If you're looking for an up-and-coming area to live in, the Woodmen, Briargate, and Northgate neighborhoods in northeast Colorado Springs are worth considering. While they may be a bit of a drive from downtown and Old Colorado City's tourist attractions, the modern suburbs and shopping centers more than compensate for it. Moreover, this area boasts one of the best school districts in El Paso County, making it an excellent place to raise your family.


Up north, Monument offers a plethora of recreational activities and is located just below Monument Pass, making it a charming town with scenic views. Families will appreciate the wealth of activities available for kids, as well as the well-planned neighborhoods. Moreover, as the hub for Peterson Air Force Base, Northgate and Briargate see many military families.


While not as densely populated as the southern parts of town, both Northgate and Briargate are experiencing significant community development, which is essential to the growth of Colorado Springs.


Monument is a peaceful retreat in El Paso County, just north of Briargate and the United States Air Force Academy. It has many parks and trails in the Tri-Lakes area that draw people from all over. It's located on the Front Range, nestled against the foothills, and the Pike National Forest is to the west, making it an excellent starting point for outdoor recreation.


As part of El Paso County, Monument neighbors many fascinating towns, but it also has its own unique restaurants and local businesses. The surrounding nature, amazing views, and nearby Palmer Lake are its biggest draws.
