Edgewater is a tiny lakeside municipality on the western shores of Sloan Lake. It sits tucked between Wheat Ridge and Denver, in Jefferson County. Though it is not highly populated, the location is a must-visited one for nature lovers out there and here’s why!
Sloan Lake – Just like every attraction in Edgewater, your next stop is just walking distance. This is considered as Denver’s 2nd largest park, which houses not only jogging trails but has other recreational activities for the family can do – such as motor-boating, bird watching or even checking out the wonderful sunset view when the dusk comes.
What started out as a leak has turned into one of Denver’s most iconic bodies of water. The park is open year round, attracting, joggers, bicyclists, soccer players and picnics. Year around- this location serves as a sanctuary for a good variety amount of birds, fish and other animals in the area.
Joyride Brewing Co. – A perfect location to appreciate Sloan’s magnificent view as this is directly facing the lake. You don’t want to miss the best beer in town – grab a pint with your friends!
