Let's try This Again: Walk in Crown Hill Park

Crown Hill Park is a natural haven amid a suburban neighborhood. Once bountiful with wheat and vegetable crops, Crown Hill is now where visitors steal away to stroll, in-line skate, cycle and run on a 1.2-mile paved trail around Crown Hill Lake, while anglers ply its shore for bass, catfish and trout. Equestrians enjoy a 2.25-mile loop around the park. The wetlands in the northwest corner, Kestrel Pond, is certified as a National Urban Wildlife Refuge for its value to a variety of migrating waterfowl. Kestrel Pond is closed during peak nesting season from March 1 to June 30. Dogs are welcome but must be leashed at all times.

We plan on walking for about 3.5 miles. The trail is paved.

Getting There: 9307 West 26th Avenue, Lakewood

From 6th Avenue, turn north on Kipling to W 26th Avenue. The main parking lot is located on W 26th Avenue at the intersection of Garland Street.
Crown Hill Park can be accessed by bus. Bus # 100 runs along Kipling Parkway, on the park's western border. Bus # 32 runs along 32nd Avenue, on the park's northern border. Bus # 28 runs along W 26th Avenue, on the park's southern border. Visit RTD for more info.

    Sorry, I came very late, around 1:50, got detained at church. Saw Paulette and another lady going home, but, they said the rest of you were still walking. I walked around the whole park, but, never saw anyone else...

    I walk here every day, so why not?
    Petia, where do you plan on meeting? The large parking area near bathrooms on 26th???

    • Petia

      Yes, if you think it is a good place to meet, let's do it - I will send an email to all attending to meet there, near the bathrooms.
