What is Ravenna?
Ravenna is a private and approachable neighborhood and club, designed for couples and families seeking an individualized and personalized community, surrounded by awe-inspiring natural beauty and an understated elegance. Located just south of Chatfield Reservoir and nestled among the iconic red rocks of the Dakota Hogback, Waterton Canyon, the South Platte River, and one of the state’s top golf courses, Ravenna is a well-rounded community that feels like a retreat, but is minutes from life’s daily conveniences, entertainment experiences, and outdoor adventures.
