Sloan Lake Park Professional Review and Guide
"Sloan Lake is the glassy centerpiece of Sloan Lake Park, a large preserve on the western edge of Denver. This land was once arid prairie, traversed only by a stagecoach and wagon track that connected Denver with the mountain gold fields. In 1861, however, farmer Thomas Sloan excavated a well and the next morning found a growing lake filling his property. It seems Sloan’s well had penetrated a large underground aquifer that slowly drained onto the surface. Special attractions: Sloan Lake, playground, boat ramp and rentals (summer), mountain views, and fishing."
