Sloan’s Lake is a neighborhood on the western edge of Denver and offers some of the most stunning views of both Downtown Denver and the Rocky Mountains. Residents of the area tend to head outside of their own neighborhood if they are looking for a night out, either to the city center or to neighboring Highlands Square. Sloan’s Lake is a family-centered community. Although it does not have the same range of restaurants and boutiques as Highlands Square, there is an excellent selection of basic stores where residents can pick up all of their necessities. The area is served by a number of good schools and boasts a wide selection of different family homes. Housing styles in Sloan’s Lake include bungalows built during the 1920s, ranches from the 1940s, Victorian and Tudor style family homes, and new postmodern style buildings.

The park that now surrounds Sloan’s Lake is the second largest in Denver, and rarely feels crowded. Many people enjoy walking, cycling, and jogging around the park, which has many beautiful trails that wind around the lake. It is also possible to go boating and water skiing on the lake. In addition, there are two children’s playgrounds and plenty of areas to sit down with a picnic. Many of the locals come out to relax in the park during the summer evenings. One of the most exciting local events is the annual Dragon Boat Festival, which takes place on Sloan’s Lake during the summer.
