Robert F. Clement Park
Aliases: Clement Park, Johnson Lake
The main attraction at this park is the large Johnson Lake, good for waterfowl of various species (including Canvasback, Bufflehead, Hooded Merganser, and Common Goldeneye), as well as Eared Grebe and the occasional loon. There are quite a few trees in the area as well, though the lack of undergrowth cuts into the variety of birds that could show up. Still, they are worth a look especially during migration.
Directions: From C-470: take CO 121/Wadsworth Blvd. and go north for 4 miles to W. Bowles Ave. Head east on Bowles; in 1/2 mile, there will be two entrances for the park on the south.
