Bowles Grove Park - Arapahoe County
Ownership: None Listed
Description: This small and unfortunately noisy park has a nice-looking riparian tangle around the small pond and along the inlet canal that looks excellent for migrants. Given its location next to two busy roads, the best time to visit may be on a Sunday morning. Two medium-sized ponds to the east across Federal could be good for ducks during the colder months, but during other times of year their use as a golfing pond clear them of all ducks except those with a death wish.

Habitat: Pond, Park, Lowland Riparian
Directions: Take the Santa Fe exit off of C-470 and head north on Santa Fe for 3.5 miles to Bowles Ave. Take a left onto Bowles and head west across the South Platte River and take your first right over the river onto Federal Blvd. The entrance to the park is on your left almost immediately after turning onto Federal.
