Take a walk through one Stapleton park and you’ll soon find yourself in another. Stapleton is as much a progression of Denver parks, interconnected with trails and open space, as it is a series of Denver neighborhoods. Westerly Creek is a beautiful example of how getting there is half the fun. With creek-side bike paths braided through a riparian corridor — past public art — and wildlife migrating right along with you.
But there’s something else happening here, too.
Westerly Creek serves as a natural water filtration system, cleaning storm water runoff, feeding the landscape and creating a healthy natural habitat for birds and other species. Many of the neighborhood parks serve this same purpose, filtering the water through sand and special pipes before sending it on its way.
Go explore all that Westerly Creek has to offer:
- Multi-purpose trails and bridges
- Natural wildlife habitat
- Public art
- Connections to Central Park, Greenway Park, the Stapleton Recreation Center and the Sand Creek Regional Greenway
