The art and life of Centerra
In Centerra, we like to think of the physical place — the offices, homes, trails, lakes, parks and so forth — as a stage. (A stage where the backdrop just happens to be the Rocky Mountains.) And community is all the wonderful scenes — the outdoor concerts and movie nights, the food truck roundups and veggie swaps, the holiday celebrations and volunteer days — that play out on that stage. In other words, we think of “community” more as a verb than a noun. So when we say “Let’s Centerra,” you know what we mean.
Powered by the Centerra Engagement Assembly
Culture requires cultivation. To emerge and grow within a community, culture needs visionaries and champions. We’ve created a new organization, the Centerra Engagement Assembly (CEA), to take what is already a vigorous arts and events scene in Centerra to new heights. We’re talking new kinds of gatherings, big and small. Some will be just for Centerra residents and/or tenant businesses. Others, such as the Wild Wonderful Weekend, will invite the general public to come experience the music, art, love of nature and sense of fun that is the heart and soul of the Centerra community.

A palette of native plants
We understand where British poet James Thomson was coming from when he asked, “But who can paint like nature?” Which is why we’ve left so much of Centerra as a natural canvas. A place where the winding ribbon of a trail leads to landscapes painted by Colorado’s most beautiful colors and textures. The soft yellow of the tall evening primrose. The elegant curtsy of the pale coneflower. The little feathery flags of blue grama grass. Thanks to the efforts of our very own High Plains Environmental Center, Centerra’s parks and natural spaces are works of art in and of themselves.
