Lowell Ponds

Don’t let their location right by the interstate fool you: these small ponds, formerly a State Wildlife Area, can often be full of waterfowl. Migration times tend to be best, but during the summer, several breeding species should be present. The associated riparian habitat may also have migrants in season.

County: Adams

Habitat: Wetlands, riparian

Directions: From I-70 westbound: at exit 271B, take Lowell Blvd. north about one mile to Lowell Ponds and Rosebud Park, which are opposite one another along Lowell just south of the South Platte River and the I-76 interchange.
