Forbes Park

Forbes Park is a gated community in the historic San Luis Valley of Colorado about 13 miles east of Fort Garland and 130 miles south west of Colorado Springs. It is truly a "PARK" with many alpine meadows, aspen, spruce and fir forests, and several alpine lakes. Forbes developed Forbes Park starting in the Mid 1970's and sold all properties. The Homeowner's Association maintains roads, common areas and the club house keeping the area pristine and as a first class gated development is the goal of the residents. Only short-term camping is allowed, and covenants ensure that new construction fits into its natural, alpine setting. The Association has snow plows and many of these parcels are accessible the year around.

The primary power source will be a 600kw wind turbine and solar arrays generating over half of the site's power. Rain will be harvested in over 1,000,000 gallons of broad, open canals to supply water for the toilets.
