Platte River Greenway
Platte River Greenway Review
Just behind the REI flagship store, this serene park is at the center of the South Platte River valley path. Its rocks and rapids are especially attractive in summer for kayakers, bicyclists, and hikers. Sidewalks extend down the South Platte to the east toward the suburbs and west toward Sports Authority Field at Mile High. A pathway in yet another direction leads to LoDo. From the park it's about a 20-minute walk to the 16th Street Mall and Coors Field, which makes it a healthy way to sightsee when the weather is good.
Confluence Kayaks. You can rent a kayak from Confluence Kayaks and take a quick lesson before paddling yourself down the Platte River. 2373 15th St., 80202. 303/433–3676 or 877/298–1292. www.confluencekayaks.com.
