The park gives plenty of opportunities to get in shape while looking at the city skyline.
Residents of Sloans Lake don’t need to join a gym to get some exercise, they can just head to the park! There are over two-and-a-half miles of paved trails throughout the grass, and they’re great for biking, walking, or running. Not only will you have views of the lake, but also the mountains and downtown Denver. Plus, the Colorado weather means you’ll be able to head there year round. You also have access to a basketball court, sports field, baseball field, and tennis courts. Unfortunately, there’s no swimming in the lake, sorry.
Colorado isn’t known for its water, but the mountains are magnificent enough that no one minds. However, boating is allowed on Sloans Lake, so there are some chances to splash around in motorized or non-motorized boats. Just keep in mind that you’ll need to have a permit.
