It has jokingly been called Sloan’s Leak for the amusing way this large urban lake was discovered. In 1861 farmer Thomas Sloan was digging a well for desperately needed water on these dry plains, only to check on it later and find a flood in his fields. By the time it was done gushing, and Denver citizens and Native Americans alike had come out on horseback to watch it, Farmer Sloan had a 200-acre lake where his crops were supposed to be. It quickly became a popular recreation spot and remains so today as Denver’s second-largest park. The Rocky Mountain vista to the west offers gorgeous views, particularly at sunset, and to the east looking over the tree canopies of the Highlands neighborhood is the downtown Denver skyline. Sloan’s Lake itself is ringed by a sidewalk where you see parents pushing their jogging strollers, cyclists zipping past, and pedestrians ambling by; out on the water look for boaters in canoes, kayaks, and sailboats, all with various wildlife splashing around. The park is host to the annual Colorado Dragon Boat Festival, a celebration of Asian cultures and an elaborately decorated boat race across the lake.
