  1. Comments are welcome about Firelight!

  2. Do you know if firelight has their own community pool or do the residents there only have access to the rec center pools?

  3. Kathi – The Firelight neighborhood does not have its own neighborhood community pool, however the Southridge Rec Center is in Firelight. If a neighborhood pool is a must, nearby BackCountry, Weatherstone or Indigo Hill may work for you in Highlands Ranch or Wildcat Ridge is close as well, but not in Highlands Ranch.
