Centennial Park - Arapahoe County
Ownership: None Listed
Description: This medium sized pond is probably the best pond for waterbirds in the area. Large flocks of dabblers and divers can be found here during the colder months, and keep an eye out for grebes and maybe even the stray loon or two. Gull flocks could potentially hold an interesting species or two during the winter, and who knows what rarity could show up at this seldom-birded location.

Habitat: Pond, Park
Directions: Take the Santa Fe exit off of C-470 and head north on Santa Fe for 5 miles to Union Ave. Take a left onto Union Ave and head across the South Platte River to Decatur St in 0.8 miles. If you reach Federal Blvd you have gone too far. Turn right onto Decatur and head north to the parking lot for the park, on the right.
