Cottonwood Marsh photo by Peter Burke

Eastlake Reservoir #3 - Adams County
Ownership: None Listed
Description: The focus of Eastlake Park, this place can be crowded with good numbers and variety of waterfowl. It also boasts a cattail marsh large enough to host any marsh-loving species. To top it all off, there is a nice patch of thick second growth cottonwoods to trap migrants. Like other parks in Thornton, this one has street parking only; perhaps the best parking area is along Fillmore Street north of 124th.

Habitat: Lake/Pond/Reservoir; Marsh; Hedgerow/Shelterbelt; Urban/Suburban
Directions: From I-25 exit 223, go east on 120th Avenue (CO 128) about two miles to Steele Street. Turn left (north) on Steele and go 0.6 miles to 124th Avenue. Turn left on 124th Avenue. Eastlake Park will be on your right. Turn right and park on Fillmore.
