The town of Bow Mar is located between Bowles Lake and Marston Reservoir in Southwest Denver. The first home was built in 1947 on land developed by Lloyd and Eleanor King. (Founder of King Soopers grocery stores). The Town of Bow Mar, Colorado was incorporated in 1958.
There are just over 300 single family homes in Bow Mar on acre sized lots, many with spectacular views of the Rocky Mountains foothills. Homes are on wide streets and are limited to no more than one story tall. Many homes in the neighborhood have been updated or scraped for new construction. Despite being only 12 miles from downtown Denver, there is a strong sense of community more akin to rural living.
Bow Mar?s centerpiece is Bowles Lake or ?Bow Mar? Lake, as it?s come to be called. Sailing from the Yacht Club, swimming from a sandy beach, fishing, picnicking and skating provide year-round recreation for residents.
