Sloan's Lake is a real gem in Denver's Parks system. Located on the edge of Denver and Lakewood in the Edgewater Neighborhood, the park provides all types of recreation. The paved trail around the lake is long, almost 3 miles. From the west shore you get a wonderful view of the Downtown skyline and from the east shore, you get a good view of the foothills in the distance. There are great restaurants and few good breweries nearby to add to your enjoyment.
