Berkeley Lake and Rocky Mountain Lake - Denver County
Aliases: Rocky Mountain Lake
Ownership: None Listed
Description: These two lakes, the foci of Berkeley Park and Rocky Mountain Lake Park, respectively, are nearly adjacent and nearly identical. Both are medium-sized lakes ringed by a thin but birdy line of cattails, which are in turn ringed by walking trails. Look for breeding coots and Pied-billed Grebes in summer and for Aechmophorus grebes and numerous species of ducks in migration and winter. Various gulls are a possibility. Both parks also have mature shade trees which may harbor resident and migrant landbirds.

Habitat: Pond, Marsh, Park
Directions: From I-70 west of I-25 in Denver, take either the Federal Boulevard exit (#272) or the Sheridan Boulevard exit (#271). Take either Federal or Sheridan south two blocks to West 46th Avenue. Both parks are on the north side of West 46th east of Sheridan and west of Federal.
