Berkeley Lake is the highlight to this beautiful North Denver park. There are numerous grassy and shady areas to have a BBQ and picnic. Walkers and joggers frequently use the trail around the lake.
I-70 runs parallel to the park, which is located at the corner of Sheridan and 46th, across from Lakeside Amusement Park. It’s easy to ignore the highway as you enjoy the fascinating scenery.
