Painted Prairie is a dynamic community made up of all types of people, from all manner of backgrounds. Here, connectivity is key: chat with your neighbors in the front yard, meet friends for dinner at Town Center, grab a bike and head out with a group to explore our many miles of trails… This is a place to learn, evolve, have adventures, and grow. This is Painted Prairie.
A community where families flourish and friendships are made, Painted Prairie incorporates community-building moments within the haven of home. Tree-lined streets with alley-loaded homes create front yards with room to play and connect. At Painted Prairie, connectivity is key, whether being linked to the community through a variety of ultimately-walkable, bike-friendly streets, paths, and trails, to the connectivity you’ll discover when meeting friends at the Town Center for a morning yoga class and cappuccino. Painted Prairie is where memories are made and friendships formed.

Our First Resident’s Story
Moving from out of state to be closer to her daughter and grandkids, Maria Jolly, our community’s very first resident, explains in this video how she knew Painted Prairie was going to be her next home. “There was some connection that I had—the openness, the green space, the feeling of nature was going to make me feel right at home,” she said. And sure enough, she was right.
