This small lake and associated riparian grove near Broomfield make for a pleasant stop if in the area. Look for a variety of waterfowl (best during the spring and fall; winter if there is still open water), and passerine migrants during appropriate times of year. In the late fall or early spring when ice is on the reservoir, this can also be a good place to look for gulls.
Directions: From I-25: exit at 144th Ave. and go west. The grove is located at the north parking lot, on the south side of 144th at Tejon St.
